Classroom Procedures

Filed under: Students — Mr. White @ 3:25 pm

One of the keys to making sure a classroom is run properly is to have routines.  If you were to walk into any classroom you would be able to recognize the routines set by the teacher with the students.  As administrators, we perform what are called walk through visits regularly to look for what the students are learning, what strategies are being used to improve student achievement and looking at the walls.

Something that happens throughout the school, especially the younger grades, is how teachers get the students attention.  Some of the innovative ways to refocus students I have seen are:  1. Raise your hand and students do the same.  2.  Call out the technique – “Hands Everyone – students clasp their hands 3.  Rhythmic clapping  4. Stop the music.  Students were excellent to return their attention to the teacher.
