How to Get Your Students to Walk the Halls with Ease - Part 2
As promised from my last post, I wanted to give a step by step plan of how to teach your students how to line up. ⬇️
🚶🏽Verbally share with students the routine for lining up.
🚶♀️Provide a visual of written steps and/or pictures.
🚶🏽Verbally share the routine AND model to students what they should be doing at each moment.
🚶♀️Demonstrate this once more without verbal cues.
🚶🏽Call on 5 volunteer students to line up how you expect them to. Ensure all students are watching.
🚶♀️Kindly call out what they are doing well. Focus on this. Give them rewards.
🚶🏽Be an example of what not to do and share why students should not be doing this.
🚶♀️Give them realistic reasons as to why the procedure is important for learning.
🚶🏽Have the entire class practice this routine until it is mastered.
🚶♀️Should students not follow all of these expectations and procedures, then they will sit down and repeat the task until it is seamless.
If you empower them well enough, you’ll notice some students will want to lead others in how to do this correctly, along with any other routine.
Classroom management is simply giving your students the structure and environment to learn.
You are simply the FACILITATOR, not the stressed out teacher who cannot get lessons completed.
Remember to save these posts if you think it’ll help you prepare for next year.
Also, let me know down in the comments if this example helped. Feedback helps me serve you best. 🏽
Feel free to ask me how to teach students another routine you may want to implement in the classroom. I’d love to be a guide.
