Classroom Procedures Flowchart...

At a staff meeting we were all asked to create a classroom procedures flowchart. At first I went "yuck, more work" but then I realized this is the greatest thing ever!!!


I had them laminated, one for each table. If someone is not sure what to do next the manager of that table will hand them a flowchart. It has changed my world!

    1. I thought it was just busy work when our principal told us to do it but boy was I wrong! It has really helped. I just did it in word. I works for my k-5 th graders. I have to read it to the k's but they are learning the ways of the are room!

    1. Ingrid...so for it has been fantastic! Hopefully it is not like most things that fade as the kids get use to it! I have given on to each table manager and when someone does not know what to do next the manager hands it to them.

  3. Let me just say, I LOVE your flow chart. This is all the information that I find myself repeating over and over during every class all day every day! A few visuals for my younger grades who can't read as well and something like this would be perfect for my room. Thanks so much for sharing. I'll be figuring out how to make one for myself ASAP!

    1. My flow chart was simply made in power point because that is what I had open when I decided to create it. It was very easy. I love your idea of adding photos for the little ones. It has really helped!

  5. I love this idea! But have not been able to figure out how to make a flow chart. I'm about to pull my hair out! How did you use power point to create one?

    1. Glad to hear it! After you hand it to the kids several times they quit asking "what do I do now"!
