When we focus on routines and procedures, we are providing students with a consistent structure and setting clear expectations. This helps avoid confusion, decreases classroom interruption and discipline problems, increases task time and provides teacher satisfaction.
In order to support our students (especially our youngest students, our second language learners and our special education students), it is helpful to provide visual reminders of what our routines and procedures are so that students can learn how to become responsible and independent.
That’s why I created these task cards. This set includes 13 full size task cards, definition cards for the word routine and procedure and a cover page.
The task cards read…
-Organize your supplies. Clean your desk/table.
-Pick up scraps, pencils, crayons, etc… from the floor.
-Complete your classroom job quickly.
-Get your backpack, coat and other belongings.
-Put your homework and important papers inside your folder.
-Get your lunchbox. Put it inside your backpack.
-Put your homework folder inside your backpack.
-Push your chair in quietly.
-Put your chair on top of your desk or table quietly.
-Stand in line quietly.
-Read quietly. Listen for your bus number.
-Sit quietly. Listen for your bus number.
-Say goodbye to your teacher(s) and classmates.
Hope you and your students find these task card reminders useful. Have a wonderful school year.
