Mr. Doyle will be visiting our school next Tuesday 31st January 2012. Four students, two from 19e and two from 19p will be allowed to ask him a question. The two students with the most interesting questions will be picked. Try to be imaginative and original. Your question should be something that cannot be easily found on the internet. Post your questions in the comments section below. Good luck!
This is the behaviour report for 19e for the past month, according to Class Dojo. "Shouting in class" is the main reason for the negative marks. This is a simple thing that can be sorted by students putting up their hands. "Hard work" and "helping others" have played a big part in our positive marks. 19e are a class that love to help each other.
Rewards will be given out only when we have an 80% positive report. Please remind me to turn Class Dojo on for every class!
This is the behaviour report from Class Dojo for the last month. As you can see, it is pretty dismal. "Swinging in chair" has been a regular offense and this is ruining the chances of any rewards. Fortunately "hard work" has been noted quite a lot.
Sometimes, we have forgotten to do Class Dojo during class, which means there have been good behaviour which we are missing.
Please keep reminding me to turn it on at the start of class! For next month, a minimum of 80% positive will be required for rewards.
Are you guilty of using 'text speak' in the classroom? By 'text speak', I am referring to the omission of vowels or using symbols or using abbreviations to make words shorter. This may include 'enuf' instead of 'enough', '&' instead of 'and', 'coz' instead of 'because'.
Are you the culprit? Look through your copies tonight and see whether or not you have been using the dreaded 'text speak'.
Please help sustain the English language!
Stop the text speak in copies and classes!
Do not attempt to use it on our class website!
Feel free to write any examples of 'text speak' below. You must also include the correction! Then you must take a vow to never use it again!
