Give your students a checklist to remind them of classroom routines to follow when working independently.
What Do I Do If..? Classroom Routines to Teach Your Students
Creating explicit classroom routines is absolutely critical for our students! By establishing a solid structure, we provide a predictable and secure atmosphere that fosters success. When teachers establish clear expectations and procedures, learners are empowered to tackle various activities and transitions throughout the day with enthusiasm. These routines minimise disruptions and distractions, allowing students to fully concentrate on learning and achieving their goals
Give Your Students a Checklist of Classroom Procedures to Follow
This checklist will guide your students through a routine when they have independent work to complete.
Sections on the checklist include:
- When I Get Started
- When I Need Help
- When Others Are Nearby
- When I’m Stuck
- When I Think I’m Done.
Print off a set of checklists on thick card, cut them out, and provide one for each student to use with a dry erase marker. This will allow the checklist to be wiped clean and used over and over.
