When I was a beginning teacher, we had a classroom management specialist present us with a list of routines to develop and directly teach in our classrooms. Over the twenty-something years I have taught in the public schools, I have refined this list to fit me and what was important in my classroom.
I created this form to keep track of my procedures. This helped me keep track of what I had taught my students to do in these situations. I made printed copies for the students to practice the routines we learned to make our class operate smoothly.
I kept a completed one in my substitute file, so guest teachers could see quickly how I expect the room to run. I also used this to help new students assimilate into my class.
I find that students need occasional review after breaks, etc. I hope you find this tool useful in your classroom.
