Leader In Me Classroom Management

Mrs. Mertz’s Classroom Management Plan:
"Be a Leader in the Library"
 

Habit 1- Be Proactive: We return our books on time.  We are careful to keep the bookshelves neat.  We clean up our supplies and work spaces.

Habit 2- Begin with the End in Mind: We come to the library ready to work, learn, and have fun.  We focus on finding books that are “just right” for us.

Habit 3- Put First Things First: We listen and follow directions to be successful.  We get our work done so we can earn free time.

Habit 4- Think Win-Win: We are kind and make others feel good.  We want others to succeed.  We look for the best way to solve a problem.

 

Habit 5- Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: We listen to others without interrupting.  We are confident to voice our own ideas.

Habit 6- Synergize: We are respectful.  We get along with those who are different than us.  We work together to find the best solution.

Habit 7- Sharpen the Saw: We read for fun and to learn new things.  We use free time to explore and create in the Makerspace.
