2014-2015 Theatre Arts Classroom Expectations*Expect to RespectUse nice words to discuss your classmates artwork, and to talk with your teacher, classmates, or volunteers. Expect to CreateParticipation is required! By participating, you are expressing yourself. Expect to Follow DirectionsFollow directions quickly and completely at the sound of the whistle (or bel) so that everyone can have fun and learn. Expect to Be Great! Everything you do to the best of your ability is great! Expect to FocusTheatre class is our Art Time. Leave things from outside the class (attitudes, bad days, stress, anything that will distract you) outside the door. Expect to Have Fun! Theatre can be hard work, but it is so much fun!

*Any young artist that forgets his or her expectations will have to sit in the Expecting Artists Chair (EAC), until he or she remembers them. This means that young artist will miss out on a fun activity or opportunity, so dont forget your expectations! Respect, Create, Follow Directions, Be Great, and Have Fun. *Young Artists that routinely remember their Expectations will be rewarded with items from The Vault.

2014-2015 Theatre Arts Classroom ProceduresK-2nd Grade: 1. Daily Check-In: guided by the teacher, students will do a quick check-in of how they feel emotionally, mentally, and physically at the start of class. The Daily Check-In is designed to focus the students mind for the days artistic endeavor. 2. Daily Warm-Up: guided by the teacher, students will do a quick, but thorough warm-up of the voice and body. 3. Daily Activity: Students will receive instructions from the teacher. 4. Clean-Up: Students will clean up their work space, making sure to return any un-finished projects to their class appointed space. 5. Cool-Down: After clean-up, students will show that they are prepared for the Cool-Down by sitting down with their hands in their laps, and their lips closed. We will do a lot of fun, silly, high-energy activities in Theatre class, so the cool-down is designed to re-focus the students mind for re-entry into the outside world. 3rd-5th Grade:1. Daily Journal Check-In: Immediately upon entering the classroom, students should get their journals and begin. They will have three minutes at the start of every class to do a check-in in their journals: they can write paragraphs, poems, draw pictures, draw words, and picturesanything that responds to the daily prompt.
