WBT Book Club Chapter 13-Daily Classroom Procedures

Daily Procedure Topic: Getting Supplies Out for Class

Teacher: Class.
Students: Yes.

Teacher: Today, I am going to teach you how to know what supplies you need and when to get them out on our desk each day.  Tell your neighbor what you’re going to learn about today.  Clap.  Clap. Teach.
Students:  Clap.  Clap. Okay.  (Students repeat what the teacher has said.)

Teacher.  Class.  Class.
Students:  Yes.  Yes.

Teacher: Each day in history class, you must come prepared with a set of supplies.  These include your notebook, paper, pencil, colored pencils, glue, and scissors.  Some days you might only need a pencil, but other days could require all supplies.  But, no matter what, you must come prepared.  TEACH!
Students: OKAY! (Students repeat what the teacher just said.)

Teacher: Oh Class.
Students: Oh Yes.

Teacher: I will always have the current day’s supply list written on the front board.  When I clap like this, “Clap.  Clap.  Clap, clap, clap,” and say, “R2 Stuff,” you will immediately stop what you are doing, complete a full turn toward the front board, repeat the clap and say, “R2 Stuff,” and (R2) READ and REPEAT the supply list for the day 3 times.  Teach your neighbor how we will get our STUFF ready for class each day.  Clap.  Clap.  Teach.
Students: Clap.  Clap.  Okay.  (Students explain Clap.  Clap.  Clap, clap, clap.  R2 Stuff).  

Teacher: Class.
Students: Yes.

Teacher: Good job, teaching.  That’s one point on the scoreboard for the class.  Give me an, “Oh Yeah!”
Students: Oh Yeah!

Teacher: Now that you know how we are going to get supplies out, we need to practice.  You must get supplies out quickly so we can begin class on time.  Here we go!  I want you to turn to your neighbor and begin talking.  When I interrupt, it will be for R2 Stuff.  Ready.  Talk!
Students:  (Students turn and begin talking to each other.)

Teacher: “Clap.  Clap.  Clap, clap, clap.  R2 Stuff.”  
Students: (Students stop talking, make full turns toward the board, clap/say, “Clap.  Clap.  Clap, clap, clap.  R2 Stuff,” and repeat the supply list 3 times.  Then, they get out the needed supplies as quickly as possible.)

Teacher: Class.  Class.
Students.  Yes.  Yes.

Teacher: That was awesome!  Give me a Mighty Oh Yeah!
Students: Oh Yeah!

*Note: As an added bonus, the teacher can use the “Beat the Clock” Scoreboard to encourage students to get ready faster.
