Reflection: Routines and Procedures Introduction to the Double Bubble Map - Section 3: Guided Practice (We Do)


We did this lesson at the beginning of the year, and, as I was planning for the lesson, I thought ahead to how I was going to have students get an equal turn to have a hands on experience and not fight over materials.  I told my students once they put the balls in the center of the table that we would be numbering off Person 1, Person 2,  ... all the way to Person 5.  Our routine is that each Person gets an equal amount of time to have their turn and then they have to pass the object to the next person. I never know if students will come to me having a hard time getting along with others or not, so I choose to think about our routines ahead of time in order to eliminate these kinds of problems before they even start.  The lesson went smoothly and we didn't have problems with students grabbing from each other or complaining that someone else was taking too long of a turn.  I felt as though both the content part of our lesson went smoothly as well as the behavior management part.
