This Classroom Procedure Manual is the PERFECT addition to your classroom. It is my hope that by using this Classroom Procedure Manual, your students will become self-sufficient learners within the walls of your room. I have used this manual for 17 years now and find it invaluable to my classroom teaching. It truly helps set the tone for my year.
This manual is meant for STUDENTS. This is not something to be sent home to parents to read about the classroom, rather it is intended for the students to keep as a handy reference for all of your classroom procedures. The book is filled with MY procedures. I realize that these procedures really will not be 100% perfect for anyone but myself. So, I have made the words in this manual EDITABLE! That is right! Just click inside the text boxes and retype your own words to better match how you do things in your room. To make things a bit easier, any time I have my name written, I have bolded it in red. This way, if you like my wording, you can keep that, but change my name! You won’t miss it!
I use this manual as my reading text for the first two weeks of school. We read aloud the procedures and practice what they look like and what they don’t. We reread the manual throughout that two week period, using reading strategies and skills. Then, as the year goes on, we periodically revisit the manual to refresh on the procedures that aren’t quite set in stone or that have been forgotten.
I have also included a sheet on how to assemble the manual. Finally, there is a blank editable page in the event that you have more procedures than I have allowed room. You do NOT have to use this page. It is there for your convenience.
This is a POWER POINT FILE (pptx). Please make sure you have POWER POINT before you purchase. I also used COMIC SANS, as I know all computers come with this font. Feel free to change it when you edit!
This pack is intended for ONE CLASSROOM TEACHER to use. If you would like to share with your colleagues, please purchase an additional license. Thank you for respecting my hard work!
