Back-to-School Procedures, Procedures, Procedures
Procedures and routines are such a vital part of a well-run classroom. Without them, everything falls apart. For real! Every time I have ever disliked a time in my school day it has all come down to what procedure I had in place during that time. Systems really are that crucial.
Classroom routines train students to carry out procedures with a minimum of wasted time. Less wasted time allows for more time to teach and learn.
Taking the time to set up routines and procedures in your classroom is THE most important thing you can do in your school year. Whether this is your first year or your 20th, day two will help you put in place practices that will save you tons of instructional time, decrease disruptive behavior, and allow you to create an environment that is ideal for learning.
"The rules in any classroom are defined by reality- “whatever any student can get away with.”" -Fred Jones
