10 minutes a day

I know that a teacher's day is BUSY!!

However, teachers can steal 10 minutes here and 5 minutes there to stay on top of things. And even if your task cannot be completed in 10 minutes, you can still put a dent in the task.

Here are some things to do in 10 minutes or less:
  • hand back some marked papers
  • mark one question on everyone's quiz
  • sort your 'to be marked' pile by assignment
  • tidy your desk
  • update your mark book
  • reflect on your last lesson
  • make anecdotal notes on one to three students
  • run to the photocopier
  • pull out the papers and supplies for your next lesson
  • erase the blackboard and write the next note or instructions on it
  • update the class' agenda, calender, and homework board
Please send in your 10 minute tasks.
