Morning routines...

Hi students
This week I walked around with my iPhone and grabbed some footage of our morning routine.

Routines are really important in our life they help keep us more organised. For instance I check my calendar on my phone every morning to see what meetings I have coming up and important school events. I also go to the gym every night after school to help keep me fit.

At school we have our morning routine where we make our Daily 5 choices, catch up on projects or do little chores.

A routine is a pattern of behaviours you do on a regularly. Like going to the park after swimming for a run around.

A habit is a behaviour you do so many times that you don't even think about it. A good habit is something that helps like looking both ways before crossing the street.

What are your routines and habits?

How do they help you to be organised?

Make a comment to share the most effective routines and habits in your life.

  7. Room Fifteen
    Thank you SO much for your answers about your classroom. We had an animated and excellent discussion this morning about your classroom layout - we were amazed that you didn't have a teachers desk in the classroom and that you had only thirteen desks but nearly thirty students. It really got us thinking about our learning space and how yours is so different even though the classrooms are nearly the same size. We have come up with some more questions about your classroom that we are going to be posting online today but thank you so much for the collaboration and the experience.
    Mr Webb and Room Five, Melville Intermediate School, Hamilton, Waikato.
