Routines and Transitions in the Classroom
Presented to
ASTEP Teacher Candidates

The Teacher
“Concerning a teacher’s influence, I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or deescalated, and a child humanized or dehumanized.” --Haim Ginott

In establishing procedures,
it is important to:

Ensure that students understand the reason for the procedure.

Clarify the procedure through modeling.

Allow students opportunities to practice the procedure through rehearsal.

Try not to overwhelm students by teaching too many procedures at once.

Remember that it will probably be necessary to revisit this process as you see the need.

What you do on the first days of school
will determine your success or failure for
the rest of the school year.

You will either win or lose your class
on the first days of school.

Student achievement at the end of the year is
directly related to the degree to which the
teacher establishes good control of the
classroom procedures in the very first week
of the school year.

--Harry Wong
Prime time in school is the first few moments in a class. If you blow these moments, you blow the impression, the sale, and the success of a class.“

- The First Day of School by Harry K. Wong and Rosemary T. Wong
