Today during our Induction Routines and Procedures: Materials and Timers session, teachers learned how to plan and execute a system that includes distributing materials efficiently and effectively. As a teacher you can use a variety of timers including power-point timers, stop watches, verbal countdowns, and visual countdowns using your hands. Utilizing these timers for classroom routines and procedures creates a sense of urgency, maximizes instructional time and builds a culture of achievement with your students. AWESOME!
