06 May Set up structured morning activities.
As soon as your students come into class in the morning, give them something structured to do. Morning times tend to be the most productive times for many children. Place an activity on every child’s desk, or place students into groups and have a structured game at a group table. Students should know exactly what to expect when they walk in. Plan something reinforcing and exciting, yet structured and predictable. There’s nothing like starting the day off on the right foot for both you and your students.
P.S. Be sure to use a visual schedule so your students know what to expect.
