Knowing what you want and being explicit about that early can turn an ordinary year into an extraordinary year!
Having a cute room is important, but…knowing your procedure for collecting homework, and sharpening pencils, and movement around the room is even MORE important.
This freebie is something that I turn to in my own classroom! 🙂
I have a slide show that I’ve used for several years. It has many of the daily procedures in it.
I like to go over it daily during the first two weeks of school. With older students, I could do it in a day…with my littles, I break it up over a week. After I go over a slide, I spend a few minutes going over how to perform that particular task. At the beginning, it takes a while, but…the repeated proper practice results in students who know my expectations explicitly.
It’s not very fancy, but…it works!

If you think something like this might work for you, but you’d like to make a few changes, I’ve made an editable version.
Once you set up those procedures, stay the course! 🙂
It’s the most important part of any classroom management plan! 🙂
