How to Teach Classroom Procedures
Our young learners aren’t yet
readers. Therefore, posters of written rules, schedules and procedures
are null and void. To young children, these posters are just visual
But, pictures are a different story. Young children can ‘read’ pictures.
So when it comes to helping young children learn about routines in the classroom- visuals are the way to go.
I found a need for visual procedure
cards in my classroom several years ago, so I created them, implemented
them and I am so happy I did.
The benefits of procedure cards are
huge and I saw all of those benefits when I implemented them myself.
Plus, the visuals have kept me from having to say a routine procedure
over and over and over and over and… you get it!
