The Importance of Having Routines and Schedules

Tuesday, February 12, 2019


As far as the classroom goes, "Routines are the backbone of daily classroom life. They facilitate teaching and learning…. Routines don’t just make your life easier, they save valuable classroom time. And what’s most important, efficient routines make it easier for students to learn and achieve more."
—Learning to Teach…not just for beginners by Linda Shalaway. When routines and procedures are carefully taught, modeled, and established in the classroom, children know what’s expected of them and how to do certain things on their own. Having these predictable patterns in place allows teachers to spend more time in meaningful instruction. These routines hopefully carry over to everyday life. Routines help people know what to expect next. They hetp to lower stress of not knowing what will happen next. Children can be more engaged, and there are fewer behavior problems when they understand the daily routine. Maybe most important of all, routines have a good effect on a child's social, cognitive and emotional growth. “Depending on what they are, our habits will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.” ―Sean Covey
Everyone can be more productive with a good routine. Routines allow us to take care of those things that have to be done each day without thinking about it. According to ultramarathoner and author Hal Elrod, “How you wake up each day and your morning routine (or lack thereof) dramatically affects your levels of success in every single area of your life." A focused morning can make a big difference in the productivity of your whole day!
Starting a good schedule that works well for you can cause the actions to become a habit in about 21 days. The healthy habits that you establish can improve your life.
The importance of routines and schedules in the classroom and beyond!
