Routines and procedures are extremely important. For a typical reading class we start by reading our words with the sound of the week, then we do a whole group mini-lesson, followed by our station rotation where one group reads with the teacher and the other group is working on their Chromebook doing an assigned MobyMax activity that is at their level. My students know the routine so well, that they can complete a class without me, if necessary and as you know, random things come up (bloody noses, illness, restroom issues, etc.). The best thing is, is that when I come back the students report whether or not they stayed on task and are typically pretty honest as they know a peer will help them remember if they were off task.
