"Routines are the backbone of daily classroom life. They facilitate teaching and learning…. Routines don’t just make your life easier, they save valuable classroom time. And what’s most important, efficient routines make it easier for students to learn and achieve more."
—Learning to Teach…not just for beginners by Linda Shalaway
Classrooms -- particularly those with young children -- need to have routines. These routines help you maintain order and also help the kids stay calm. If there is a set activity for every part of the day, you will be able to focus more on your teaching.
When routines and procedures are carefully taught, modelled, and established in the classroom, children know what’s expected of them and how to do certain things on their own. Having these predictable patterns in place allows teachers to spend more time in meaningful instruction.
Included in this Morning Routine, Morning Meeting smart notebook is a range of crucial elements to assist students in starting their day. The review pages will allow students to continually practice the skills you have taught them in both Literacy and Numeracy. They will also be able to connect their learning to other areas.
Students will develop a sense of stability and confidence as the routine becomes very familiar to them. The visuals are fantastic for any classroom but especially for students with special learning needs. This smart notebook also ensures that all important dates and announcements are discussed. Communication is key to a stable learning environment.
