My Daily Expectations Task Cards are designed to be used as a classroom management review activity as well as writing prompts.
Keeping a classroom running like clockwork takes consistency and a clear understanding of expectations. Instead of constant reminders (which many times stem from a student just not understanding what is expected of him or maybe even teachers not being as clear or as consistent as we think are being), try using these task cards to teach and reinforce procedural expectations.
1.Review Expectations and Procedures: Use these task cards to teach procedural expectations. There are 112 basic procedures covered and 16 additional blank cards for your own unique needs. Just choose the ones you need and teach them to your class at the beginning of the year.
2.Review Often: Use as a review tool throughout the year. You can use as a full lesson or pull a few cards when you have a few minutes to spare.
3.Writing Prompts: My favorite way to use these cards are as writing prompts, especially when I am having issues with a specific expectation, such as tattling or lining up. They can be used as a whole group writing lesson (class book), small group work to address a specific group of offenders, sub work, or early finisher work…the list really can go on and on.
I hope you find these expectations task cards useful in your classroom and that they help your classroom “atmosphere” become much more pleasant. I firmly believe that consistency is the key to most of the issues we come across!
Thanks so much!
