Ms. Nikki Newton, M.Ed.
I. My Background
I have been in education for over 15 years and have served in the capacity of both educator and administrator during my career. I have taught many subject areas in both public and private schools in grade levels two through twelfth grade.
Outside of education, I actively serve as a Firefighter-Emergency Medical Technician and currently pursuing Auxiliary Police. My passion for helping others has led me to these exciting careers.
II. Classroom Management: Manners, Self-Control, Respect for Authority, and Self-Discipline
Classroom Rules and Expectations
I want to create a classroom that welcomes students and makes them enthusiastic learners. I love to incorporate fun activities such as shaving cream spelling, group responses, games, play-doh, and anything fun that I see on Pinterest! In order to have the freedom to incorporate fun, hands-on activities when possible, students’ maintaining self-control and positive behavior is essential.
1. Bring all of your materials to class daily
2. Respect yourself and others by adhering to rules and demonstrating self-control
3. Have a positive attitude and be willing to learn
*STUDENTS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO WRITE IN ERASABLE PEN OR PENCILS - NO EXCEPTIONS.
I am a strong believer in making my time with students in the classroom as effective as possible reducing the need for extensive homework on a daily basis. Homework will be given for reinforcement of skills to ensure it is meaningful but reasonably limited.
●Homework to be submitted by the following class – extenuating circumstances can be discussed through parent-teacher communication. Email is best as sometimes hand-written notes do not make their way to me.
●If a student is absent, it is their responsibility to make up work. In this modern time, all students have access to technology and can use that knowledge to contact another classmate to ask about the missed assignment or email me as well. Extra copies of handouts are also kept in the colored magnet pockets on the board for each class.
●As necessary, extra homework may be assigned when activities are not completed in class due to classroom behavior. Individual students may also receive additional homework when classroom assignments have not been completed and are as a result expected to be completed at home in addition to the daily assigned homework.
Homework should ALWAYS be copied in a planner. Do not rely on technology.
Assignments are always due on the deadline given.
All of Ms. Newton’s classes need the following supplies: Large Binder, Binder Dividers, Binder paper hole punch (Staples, Dollar Tree, etc.), Pencils/Erasable Pens, Highlighter, Colored Pencils, Scissors, Tape, Glue, Expo Markers, Folder, Index Cards, Earbuds for Chromebooks.
ORGANIZATION IS KEY IN MY CLASSROOM AND IN LIFE!
Read the following information on Developing Good Organizational Habits by Oxford Learning:
HOW TO BE MORE ORGANIZED IN MIDDLE SCHOOL (FOR STUDENTS & PARENTS)
Middle school is an important transition to high school. In middle school, students develop organization and study habits that will follow them throughout their lives. Better organized students tend to do better in school, but not many schools teach organizational skills for middle school students. Middle schoolers need to develop good habits so that they’re set up for success.
THESE TIPS WILL HELP TEACH YOUR CHILD HOW TO BE MORE ORGANIZED IN MIDDLE SCHOOL.
ORGANIZATION STARTS WITH THE RIGHT SUPPLIES
Being organized starts with having the right tools. Before you go shopping, figure out what supplies your child will need. Unnecessary school supplies can make students more disorganized, so it’s important to limit purchases to the necessities.
A. BUY THE ESSENTIALS
Even if the school year is part way over, it’s never too late to get your student organized. Find out what your child needs and create a supply list. Create your list based on teachers’ supply lists, if they have them. They will have the best knowledge of what is required for their courses. Below are some of the supplies your child should always have on hand. Assure that your child has the correct supplies by the beginning of the school year and due dates given. Most schools have supply lists listed online, on paperwork that is sent home, and most teachers have homework websites that list their class supplies as well.
PRO ORGANIZATION TIP:
Buy high quality and functional supplies. Binders that are falling apart will only lead to more disorganization. Sturdier products will be able to handle the abuse that middle schoolers put them through. This saves the need to buy more supplies during the school year.
B. CONSIDER TECHNOLOGY
Digital devices can make excellent organizational tools. They can store assignments and notes, connect students to additional resources, and help solve the problem of lost notes and assignments. These devices can also be used for research and time tracking. You can create restrictions on most of these devices to ensure that your child isn’t distracted by social media or other apps.
MIDDLE SCHOOL ORGANIZATION TIPS
Once your child has the right supplies, he or she needs to have systems in place to stay organized. Use the following tips to learn how to build organization habits.
TIP 1: MANAGE TIME EFFECTIVELY
If work and studying are not planned in advance, it’s easy to underestimate how much time a task requires, and the to-do list can pile up. An agenda, calendar, or both help plan out time so that it’s clear when assignments are due, when tests are, and when your child will work on certain things.
Make note of the assignment on the day it was assigned, and the day it’s due in your schedule. Have your child look ahead to see when assignments are due, and plan out when he or she will work on each. Every day an assignment remains incomplete, write it down again so that it is clear what needs to be done that day. When an assignment is finished, make a note and stop writing it on the calendar. This method helps create a daily checklist for middle school students.
If the days just don’t seem long enough, plan how each hour will be spent. Consider using a Master Schedule. For example, if your child doesn’t have time for homework, he or she should write down when they will work on each subject (ex. “Math homework 4 – 5:30, Break 5:30 – 5:45, Science homework 5:45 – 6:30”). Account for any breaks and leisure time in the plan, but make sure they are not preventing homework completion.
TIP 2: ORGANIZE ALL OF YOUR SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTS
Keep workstations, lockers, and backpacks organized, and clean them regularly. This will make turning disorganization into organization easy.
Use a locker organizer to divide a locker into different sections. That way, materials can be separated by subject, day of the week, or whatever makes the most sense. This is especially important if he or she only brings home the books needed each night. A small whiteboard inside the locker can improve organization. Use it to keep track of homework and assignments so and stay on top of what needs to be brought home each night.
Keep all materials in a single place. It could be a large binder, an accordion-style folder, or a clearly labelled binder for each subject. This will prevent things from being left behind when they are needed.
TIP 3: BE PREPARED WITH THE RIGHT MATERIALS
Disorganization can be caused by having to transport materials between school and home. If supplies are limited, your child can be left without the proper resources when he or she needs them. Use the following tips to reduce the likelihood of losing or forgetting supplies.
Whether at school, at home, or on the go, make sure that everything is in its proper place. Items are much less likely to get lost if they are always kept in the same spots. This means putting all worksheets in the right folders, and always keeping pens in the same pocket of a backpack.
Keep extra supplies such as writing instruments and paper at a workstation at home. You can even keep copies of books at home. Teachers are often happy to provide extra books if asked. This may be in the form of an electronic access code if there are not enough physical copies.
TIP 4: CREATE A HOMEWORK SYSTEM
Has your child ever claimed not to have homework, and then you find out later that he or she did? If students don’t have a system to keep track of homework, it’s easy to forget about assignments.
Teachers will all have different methods of reminding students of assignments. Some write them on the board, others have assignment books. Have your child check these at the end of each day so it’s clear what materials he or she will need to take home.
Have your child use coloured Post-it notes to keep track of what assignment is finished, and what still needs to be completed. Make sure the completed assignment makes it back into the binder when it’s complete! After homework has been submitted, make a note in an agenda or calendar.
MIDDLE SCHOOL ORGANIZATION TIPS FOR PARENTS FOR THE HOME SETTING
If you want an organized child, you need to be organized! Make getting organized a group effort. Once your child is used to the routine, he or she will be self-reliant. Remember, the habits students form in middle school will be carried forward, so creating good ones early on is important!
Once something becomes a habit, it will be automatic for students. Help your child learn the strategies above to set him or her up for success. Suggest secure places to keep supplies, and create a sample daily planner. Don’t force your child into a routine that doesn’t work for him or her. The most important part is that he or she has a system to consistently follow.
Mark important dates such as tests and assignment due dates on your calendar (separate from your child’s agenda or calendar) and make sure your child is prepared for them. You may be able to check assignments on the school’s website to ensure your child knows what he or she has to do.
If a child is still having trouble staying organized after trying the above steps, seek extra help. Teachers may be able to offer personalized help after school. Chances are, if a student is unorganized, the teacher is looking for a solution as well. Tutors are also great options. Tutors can help teach study and homework skills, and this is extremely common.
GET ORGANIZED AND GET LEARNING
With the right supplies, the right systems, and your support, your child will be better able to stay organized. Try out some of the above methods and make sure he or she has a successful, and stress-free middle school experience! If your child needs extra help getting organized, check out online Study Skills programs, which will help him or her learn time management, note taking skills, and more.
