Dedicating some time to mastering routines in the beginning of the academic year is vital to strong classroom management. Clear routines help tighten transitions and limit downtime for students.
Attention Getters :warning:

Be Prepared :smiley:
Having an idea of how you want your lesson or day to go helps create a smooth day in the classroom. Thinking ahead of possible issues always helps. Proper planning prevents poor performance.
