a clear procedure of your morning routine written on a poster.
Hang it in the room so that when your students enter the room,
they know exactly what is expected of them. You can refer to it
if a problem arises with a student who has a hard time getting
ready to work for the day. The routine will soon be so ingrained
in their minds, that they will no longer need to refer to it.
Expect a much smoother morning! An example might include: 1) Hang
up coat and backpack. 2) Put homework in bin. 3) Sharpen pencil.
4)Work on self-start quietly at desk.
music playing in the mornings also sets a nice tone for the beginning
of your day.
