Classroom Commands

A poster for your classroom to help your students remember what you are telling them to do!

Although the textbooks have some useful classroom imperatives in them (raise your hand, sit down, etc.), I have found that there are certain phrases I use daily that aren't in the textbooks. These include:

At the beginning
- Get your tablets.
- Erase the chalkboard.
- Let's begin. (Stand up so we can do the greeting!)

During class
- Close your tablet vs. turn off your tablet (so many of my students turn their tablets off even though we're going to use them again before class is over)
- Clear your desk.
- Take out your [textbook].
- Put your [textbook] away.
- Read aloud.
- Put your pencil down.

At the end
- Collect the worksheets. (I used a clipart image here that looks like me)
- That's all for today. (Stand up so we can finish!)
