I love Harry Wong's ideas of having a set list of classroom procedures so the students know what is expected of them. They WANT to know what to do! Here is my list of 22 procedures, including what to do when a student forgot his homework, what to do when he wants to use the pencil sharpener or the restroom, and lots more! I handed this list out to my students the first day of school and tested them on the procedures at the end of the first week. One of my favorite things in here is the class motto (located in Procedure 4). The students wrote this on the bottom of EVERY paper they handed in throughout the year. Believe me, by the end of the year, they ALL knew what responsibility meant! Check it out, modify it to fit your classroom, and enjoy!
