Guide senior students in and out of the classroom

Spark Trader Limited reports:

Although most students across the country have been back in physical classrooms for months, many middle and high school students still need support in getting in and out of classrooms properly. As students continue to adjust to returning to school, there are quick things we as teachers can do to help them create daily activities that both help them adjust and maintain the sanctity of school time.

How do students enter the classroom
Over the past year, many students have been able to simply get up and log on to a computer as they enter the classroom. With the shift back to face-to-face learning, we must teach students what we want to see when they enter our physical space.

Students should have a clear set of guidelines on the noise level when they enter the classroom, where they should move to the classroom, and what they should do once they get to their seats. By teaching and practicing these procedures, teachers can ensure that they are able to start classes on time and students will be successful during this lesson. In addition, these consistent structures help students understand what is expected of them and ensure that they can immediately focus on the content, rather than trying to explain how to perform when they enter the room.

Here are some questions to consider when introducing the program to students:

What is the noise level for students entering?
Do students have assigned seats?
Is there a “Do it now” on the board? Is it something students do in silence, or with a partner?
What materials should students take out on their desks at the beginning of the lesson?
If materials are lacking, what should students do – where are the extra pencils, books, paper, etc?
How long does it take for students to settle in before teaching begins?
How do students get out of the classroom
As with enrollment, students do not have to come out of the classroom for more than a year. By creating procedures for students to leave the classroom, teachers can ensure that students are prepared to effectively, calmly, and safely enter the next class or leave the building. In addition, teachers can avoid unnecessary behavior by clearly outlining and clearly teaching their expectations of how students will withdraw.

As the lesson ends, it is important for the teacher to have a plan for how to summarize the lesson, gather materials, and prepare space for the next group of students. Ideally, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned through written exit tickets, oral discussions or other media. This graduation activity makes the students realize that they will leave the classroom soon. Students should have a clear understanding of how to submit completed class work, how to return class materials, and how to collect their belongings and leave the classroom.

Clear procedures will help teachers ensure that each lesson is over and ready for the start of the next. Students can have time to reorganize themselves and their belongings before moving into a new space. In addition, when students understand and practice these procedures, they are more likely to avoid unnecessary behavior when switching between classes.

Some issues to consider when introducing students to this procedure:

Should each student hand in his homework, or should someone else collect it?
Should students leave the materials for the next lesson on their desks or put them back in their assigned places?
Should students leave the classroom after hearing the bell or wait for the teacher to tell them to leave?
Should the students leave immediately, or should they be asked to leave according to the area of the room?
