Reflection: Routines and Procedures Systems Prior Knowledge Part 3 - Section 5: Lab Notebook Organization


I thrive on classroom procedures.  I love to find ways to dig out "hidden minutes" that can be added to classroom instruction.  This year I am really struggling with this because my classes have been cut down to 49 min.  Many of the structures I had last year, that worked beautifully, I now don't have time for - at least not yet.  I am fighting this in two ways.  First, I am introducing structures slowly, adding one at a time, until it is almost second nature to students.  Second, I am carefully building in collaborative jobs so that students can do one thing and then be done.  Some of my jobs are:

  • Picking up the folders on the way in the classroom.
  • Picking up the lab notebooks on the way to their seat.
  • Checking the supplies to make sure they are all there.
  • Straightening the table.
