Back-to-School Procedure Task Cards

How many times have you thought I wish I had this new group of students was knew all the school and classroom procedures? Teaching classroom procedures during the first weeks of school can become monotonous for students. Are you wondering what you need to teach? Are you looking for a fun way to teach these procedures? If so, you have come to the right place. First, see a list of suggested procedures to teach. Next, download the free Scoot game that you can use to teach school procedures. These are now available as editable Google Slides.

What are examples of classroom procedures?

If you are wondering which procedures to teach, this list will give you a good start.

Here is are a list of questions students may have:

  • What should a student do who needs a pencil, paper, or another type of school supplies?
  • What should I do before school or class officially begin?
  • When I am tardy to school, what do I need to do?
  • What do I need to do when I return to school after being absent?
  • When a visitor comes to the classroom, what should I do?

Other situations students might need assistance:

Using Scoot to Teach Classroom Procedures

Because teaching procedures can be dull and difficult, I have created task cards that work well with the game Scoot. Instructions for Scoot are included in the download.

Playing Scoot turns using a set of task cards into a game. You play by placing one task card on each student’s desk. For easier recording, place the cards in numerical order. Give each student one copy of a sheet to record answers.

Directions

Each student will read the question on the activity card on his/her desk and will record the answer. After a length of time (approximately 1 minute), a signal is given for the students to scoot to the next desk. The signal may simply be the teacher saying “move” or noise such as a bell. The procedure repeats at each desk. The activity continues until all students end up at the desks where they began the activity.

These cards are editable. After downloading the file from Teachers Pay Teachers, all you need to do is open it in PowerPoint. Note: Because these were created in an older version of PowerPoint, you now can choose between PowerPoint or Google versions.

The backgrounds are fixed, but the words can be edited. You can change the text to meet your individual classroom requirements by just clicking on the text to highlight the textbox and then simply type new questions.
