Hi everybody, now I am going to talk you about “classroom routines” which I have carried out in the classroom.
I have been using routines that my teacher was already using and other that I have incorporated in the classroom. My experience using these routines has been satisfactory. Children have done everything that I asked them.
In my opinion it is important for them to know some routines and how to do them properly, of this way learning is easier and faster for them because they know what they have to do when the teacher ask them. Before I came, children knew some routines which the teacher taught them and they are usually doing them with me.
I have used some classroom routines like to do a dictation every Monday. I read a text and they copy it in their notebooks. Also at the beginning of the lesson I use to correct the exercises, as my teacher. Although, I have used my own classroom routines every day after correcting exercises, I have reviewed the content which I explained during in the previous lessons asking some questions about it to the children.
Another one classroom routine that I have incorporated in the classroom is to ask students when they are answering the exercises, why do they think that their answer is correct, for example, if they are doing some grammar exercise, they always have to answer saying the rule, of this way they will be able to remember better the content.
Pupils have reacted positively and they do everything that I ask them. They usually remember all about the contents that they learnt during in the previous lesson. For this reason, I feel so good because I can see how they learn, understand and remember everything that I teach them.
