Are you planning to spend time reviewing classroom procedures during your first week back after break?

In a perfect world, we can jump right back into routines in January and pick up right where we left off before winter break. Right?! If your mentality is to jump right back in, you may find yourself pulling out your hair because no one seems to remember your classroom procedures.

Some of your students can jump right back in and remember your expectations. However, don’t assume that all of your students can. I encourage you to take some time to review your routines in a fun way so that you have a smoother transition into next quarter.

In this episode, I share three different activities that make reviewing procedures more fun:

  1. Board Games
  2. Group Presentations
  3. Find Someone Who
