Class Meeting Notes - Things Shauna is Sick of Saying

Today we had an excellent class meeting about some issues that have been cropping up in Room 209. Read below for details.

Things Shauna is sick of saying
    1. Get off the chairs, we are sitting on the carpet
    2. Please move, move far
    3. Take care of the classroom materials
    4. In room 209, respect your classroom organization and supplies
    5. Which one of these class expectations are we not following?
    6. You know that you’re not supposed to be sitting with that person
    7. Clean up after yourselves
    8. Respect this place, respect others, respect yourself
    9. Turn the voice level down
    10. You didn’t “brang” it, you “brought” it
    11. It’s not your turn right now
    12. Work quietly, everyone needs to focus
    13. Please speak louder so everyone can hear your ideas
    14. If you want to be trusted, be honest
    15. Class order, 6 S line
    16. Please be quiet so you can hear me
    17. Don’t whine or groan or moan
How can we get Shauna to BE QUIET?
-Listen the first time to instructions (Vickie)
-Get in class order (Vickie)
-Maybe we could not only listen the first time, but maybe do it by knowledge. (James)
            -use your prior knowledge
            -use your problem solving skills
            -figure things out
-Think before you say/do (Pat)
            -use the tools around the classroom
-Don’t work with people you know you’re not going to work well with or sit with your friends on the carpet (Miguel)
-You can lose Degu Pen time if you can’t follow class expectations (Ethan)
            -you will get warnings from Shauna
-If you’re not listening to the instructions or you forget them and you have to go back and ask again, set up so that you’re sitting in the front so it’s more clear for you (Thomas)
-Don’t argue when you’re asked to move apart, just do it – STAND UP and MOVE, it’ll make things much better. You might feel like you’ll be angry either way, but Shauna will be happier if you just move. (Fin)
-Don’t chit-chat all the time so the teacher and the people who are listening don’t get fed up (Millie)
            -and when we have to miss a game in French (Madi)
            -the volunteers get fed up (Erika)
            -we get fed up (Fiona)
            -it’s not fair when you have to put your heads down and 
            you’re not doing anything wrong (Molly)
            -the degus (Shauna)
            -substitute teachers too, Shellie (Fin)
-Ask 3 before the teacher (Fiona)
-When you get moved a lot, make a goal/a resolution (a New Year’s Resolution, maybe) to not sit with that person as much (Pat)
  -I think by the end of December, we should be able to not be told
   once to be moved (Ethan)
-If these are your goals, follow them (Kaleigh)
   -follow ALL your goals (Shauna)
-By the beginning of January, we shouldn’t need these talks – CLASS GOAL (Madi)
-monthly whiteboard goals (Fin)
     -when we’ve all finished writing our goals, we will post them in here
      and you will post them at home! (Shauna)


  1. Andrew's class has heard enough of "turn the voice level down."


  2. Poor poor Degus and poor poor Zane. :(
