Never underestimate the importance of teaching routines. In every classroom and every grade level... but ESPECIALLY in Kindergaten. And in Kindergarten, we teach them, model them, practice them, talk about them for, oh... 180 days (give or take a few) and just when you think they have it..... BAM! Nope, back to the drawing board and you teach, model, and practice them again.
I put the list on a clipboard, and highlight them as I go.
