WHY DO WE HAVE PROCEDURES?A procedure is the way that we do things.To do things right, we have to follow some simple procedures, for example:To place a call on your phone, you need to enter the number in the right order.So, to be successful in learning, you need to follow some simple procedures.

RIGHT AFTER THE BELL RINGSComplete one poetry page.Read to self when you are done with your poetry page.A student will be taught the procedure of how to be the Attendance Keeper. This student places an Absent folder on that desk of the student who is absent. I can then glance around the room quickly and know who is absent.
DURING INSTRUCTIONListen to the teacher with full attention.No pencil sharpening, talking, or whispering while someone is talking.Ask permission to speak by raising your hand and getting permission from the teacher.Ask questions related to the subject.
