One routine I establish is the Backpack Tub. I saw this in one of my colleague's classrooms last year, and knew it would help organize my morning routine. I place this tub on the book case right next to my classroom door. As students hang up their backpacks and unpack their gear, they can drop off notes, art work, signed papers, homework folders, and anything else they have for me. I love that I can start my day without misplacing anything important (hopefully). Once my students get going on their morning work, I take attendance and sift through the backpack tub.
