Dare I say it…it is almost time to head back to school. We have three more weeks before we go back. I cannot believe how fast the summer has gone. I swear it was just May last week!
Last year, I posted a list of procedures to teach on the first week of school.
As we know, the first week of school is ALL ABOUT procedures!! Taking the time at the beginning of the year to teach the procedures for how your classroom will run, will save you SO much time later on. Your students need to know the procedures and expectations for everything. There have been years where I have made the mistake of thinking that they knew what to do in certain situations, but I quickly learned the importance of going over every little thing. I like to keep this checklist handy during the first couple weeks of school to make sure that I don’t miss anything.
I added a quick checklist this year, which will allow me to check off when I have taught that particular procedure. I probably won’t check it off of the list until we have gone over it for a couple of days, and I am confident that my students know it.
