Tips and Tricks to Teach Procedures and Routines


Whenever I have a new student mid year I get a reminder of how far my students have come with learning the classroom routine and procedures. They know what to do and enjoy the routine even when I think they may not!

How do you teach your students the routine and procedures?!
1. VISUALS
large schedule
small schedule
individual schedule
Picture/ social stories of what is expected and happy/ sad choices. You can find some social stories here. 
Social Story Bundle
Visuals before each activity of what is expected. You can find this here. 
I have schedules for most of what we do throughout the day. 


2. Make visuals accessible to be able to be used easily!
3. MODEL
4. Some students may need hand over hand initially, but always first give them the opportunity to try to do it independently. 
5. Consistency! If you keep using the visuals and model, eventually your students will remind others in the same way! It helps the classroom run smoothly (most of the time) and can reduce some of the behaviors you have in your classroom.
