I’m continuing to fine tune one of the cornerstones to classroom management: our opening routine. As described in earlier posts (see links above), we use a handout to guide our opening of class procedures and to get feedback from students. Dashboard slides are key to having students being self-starters and allowing me to have a few moments to address the needs that pop up as well as build relationships with students.
Today’s update keeps the previous elements but adds two things: a spot for students to record their upcoming assignments and the questions we use for reflection. You can find a copy of it here:daily warmup sheet with homework line
