## Reflection: Routines and Procedures Graphing Linear Functions (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Group Activity: Stations

Contrary to everything that we know about adolescent learning and brain development - Students still spend hours sitting down each day. I love to infuse moments in class where students can stand up and move around to break up the monotony of their day. Stations are a great activity that I will use frequently throughout the year. However, in order for stations to be efficient, the classroom culture must be functional. If the room environment is too busy the benefits of this activity are quickly negated. Stations can be very stressful in the adult in the room, as you have to assist students as they work while simultaneously monitoring the movement and volume of all of the people in your room.

This is the first station activity of the year, so I will take the time to set firm expectations around volume, movement, and participation. I will gently encourage and remind students of these expectations throughout the activity as I move around the room. Given the nature of station activities, the classroom can quickly become unruly if the climate of the room is not effectively monitored. If students are not held accountable to the set expectations, this activity will be chaotic for the rest of the year.
