Students' Responsibilities:

  • Only the teacher dismisses students after the room is clean, organized and quiet.
  • Remain quiet when the teacher or a student is speaking.
  • Share art only during art walk, art share time, or when asked by the teacher so as not to interrupt instruction or work time.
  • Proper care and use of all tools and materials are expected; clean all materials and return to their proper locations.
  • Each person is responsible for cleaning his or her work area; including floor, table and sinks.

Rainbow Club Points: 

Students start the day with 3 points and hope to keep the word ART and not earn 0 points by the end of the 30 minute class. Classes can earn the letter “A” at the start (first 2-3 minutes of class) by walking down the hallway and entering the art room quietly. It also includes sitting down immediately and quietly in their assigned seats (1 point).

Students earn “R” during the middle of class time for following all classroom rules; quietly working, raising hands and taking turns speaking (no blurting), and using art supplies responsibly (1 point).

Students earn “T” at the end of class for cleaning up immediately when asked, putting all supplies away properly, and lining up quietly when colored table is called (1 point). If class keeps all 3 letters “ART”, the class then earns 3 Rainbow Club points at the end of art class. 

Once a class looses a letter, I flip it over to show a sad face on the back. If students entered the room quietly and went straight to their seats, the “A” stays visible and is not flipped over.

Each month will have two rainbow club “free” days in art (1 blue day and 1 white day) at the end of the month. Whatever level that class has reached will be the choices that class has for their “free” day in art. For example, if 1C only reaches green at the end of September on rainbow club “free” day, this class may only choose free projects from the green, yellow, orange and red strips of the rainbow. Because 1C only reached green, their class may NOT choose any items from the blue or purple areas of the rainbow. Although, if 1C reached purple on the rainbow chart, than 1C may choose any or all of the items from the rainbow club list.
