It is important to have a good routine even in our daily lives. It makes things more organised as well as enables us to complete tasks in an orderly manner.
Why do we need routines?
Increase productivity by completing recurring tasks.
Without routines, we can become disorganised, poor momentum and classroom discipline starts to occur due to too much time gaps.
Be explicit and clearly state the important details of your routines
Model and repeat your routines to ensure your pupils understood them clearly.
Set ground rules
One voice (One person to share each time)
No going toilet during lesson
5-min break when teacher is able to complete teaching
Reward chart for good behaviour. (Weekly, monthly or termly)
Routine of discipline
- Avoid shouting bu reason with pupils
(Overuse of shouting would result it to be ineffective when you scold them for more serious offences)
- Investigate a conflict/offence before jumping into conclusion
(Fairness to gain trust)
- Address issue or behaviour and not the pupil
(State consequence of inattentiveness rather than calling pupil ‘talkative’ or ‘noisy’)
- Always look calm and think fast for extreme misbehaviour
(Do not look fearful or shocked when a child turns violent.
Stay calm and deal with it accordingly)
Routine of thinking of a question to ask during/after a lesson
Answer question regularly even if pupils are not correct
Do not laugh at friend’s wrong answer
Respect everyone’s answer
Important that pupils have the right mindset that everyone can learn. The only difference is how much and how quickly a pupil can learn. The attitude of never give up should be a routine and class culture.
