Focus room reminders
1. Remember that there are books for you to check out in the focus room. Some have teacher's editions, some do not, but there are still a lot of good resources. If you need/want something on a certain topic, just let me know and I'll see what I can find.
2. DOJO: Please use words from the matrix. When you award a point, be sure to let the student know what they did to earn that point. ( good or bad). Be specific. When you give a negative point, try to talk to that student one on one vs. saying in front of the class what negative thing she or he did.
3. State your directions in the positive, telling the students what you WANT them to do instead of what you don't want them to do.
4. If you have a student that you feel would benefit from Check in/Check out, use attached a referral sheet. This will give us information on how best to help you and the student. You can let us know what you have already tried, strengths and weaknesses etc.
5. When you send a student to the focus room, please send specific directions for work or detailed information on what happened. This can be in an email, a note or on the focus room sheet ( also attached). This way Mrs. Southard or I will do what needs to be done.
6. Focus room pass: I tried to put a focus room pass in each box before school started. If I missed you or you want two, let me know. If a student just needs a short break from class, you can use this pass. no extra information is needed (Unless you want). Your name should be on the back so we can return that to you if it gets left.
