Teaching and practicing procedures does NOT have to be boring! In fact, if you make it fun, students are more likely to remember the procedures! (Plus, they won’t fall asleep and get drool all over the desks.)
Modeling What NOT to Do
Students do the Teaching
- Students are working in groups and practicing teamwork. This helps to build a positive classroom culture.
- Students are being creative and that will help them to remember the procedures. We remember things that we teach!
- You are able to get a glimpse into their speaking, listening and group work skills. This is handy information to have as you start planning future lessons.
- You get a little break to sip your cold coffee.
Procedure Board Games
Students will take turns answering a procedure question from the cards. If they are correct, they will take their normal turn in the game. If they are not correct, their turn is skipped.
Students love it and it’s a great way for them to make new friends too!
