1.  Stay in the classroom once you enter
2.  Stay quiet and have materials ready to work
    (pencil, paper, binder/automaticity sheet)
3.  Immediately go to assigned seat and begin copying the agenda
4.  Check board for assignments
5.  Bell does not dismiss class

Classroom Schedule
Students have a rigorous classroom schedule this year. Automaticity is a timed test on basic addition/multiplication/subtraction/division given daily at the beginning of each class period.  The objective is to complete this task in 2 minutes or less with 2 or less errors before moving on to the next set.  This process is to build on the students basic skills and to build their confidence.
An example of the class schedule is as follows:
               Automaticity (5 days per week)
               CRCS (Curriculum Review of Concept SKills - 2/3 days)
               Review (2-3 days per week)
               Lesson (New material - 4 days per week)
               Practice (4 days per week)
               Homework check (3 or more days per week)
               Common Assessment (bi-weekly unless more is needed)
               Curriculum Assessment (bi-weekly unless more is needed)
               Activity (5 days per
 week: if time permits)
               Exit Slip (4 days per week)
