I can never remember what classroom management topics I have covered for the many classes I have. So to keep myself sain, I created a checklist to help remember what procedures I covered with each group.
Using this checklist saves me time by avoiding going over something we already covered and puts the responsibility back on the students. So if a student “forgot” a class procedure all I have to say (with a smile) is . . . “We covered what to do already, please ask a classmate what the procedure is” or “We worked on lining up silently in class last month, but looks like we will need some practice and try lining up again”.
Here is the PDF of my classroom procedures checklist that I use in my classroom.
What procedures do you have in your classroom and how do you keep track?
