Teach Like a Champion
Technique #28
Entry Routine


“The first routine that affects classroom culture is the one for how students enter.”

KEY IDEA: Making a habit out of what’s efficient, productive, and scholarly after the greeting and as students take their seats and class begins.

Key points to maximize the effectiveness of the entry routine.

  • Have students pick up their work (packets, worksheet, etc.) from a table on their way into class.
  • Students should know where to sit; assign seats, or allow students to sign up for regular seats.
  • Homework hand in should be done the same way every day without prompting.
  • A *Do Now should be in the same place every day; on the board or in the packet

*Do Now is another Teach Like a Champion strategy

From Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemove (Jossey Bass, 2010)
