    I try to be as effective as possible (takes upfront planning):

    -hand out notes/handouts/activities in bulk (e.g. a booklet for the unit) or when students are entering the room.

    -have the agenda printed on the board, students are prompted to immediate move to the next piece/task(s) if necessary

    -try to keep my explanations and “lecturing” to less than 5 minutes (although this is seldomly done unless I’ve adequately adapted my follow-up activity)

    -use grouping websites/apps (e.g. https://www.superteachertools.us/instantclassroom/#.XnJy74hKjIV) to quickly make groups that are easily identifiable for you and students. (Again, students will be able to transition quickly if they know the expectations).

    -engaging tasks to keep behavioural management down (hopefully)
