This article is so true. As a first year teacher this year, I worked hard to think through each part of the day so that I would have a procedure in mind to teach the students. We worked each day for the first week learning these procedures, and it was amazing to see how much that paid off. There were lots of things in my classroom that pretty much ran themselves because the students knew what to do and when to do it. This not only helped me, but my substitute teachers were also very appreciative as well. Teaching and practicing procedures at the beginning of the year cannot be emphasized enough!
