On Tuesday, September 19, the #cuechat community engaged in a lively Twitter chat focused on establishing routines and procedures at the beginning of the school year. The chat was powered by @ConnectedTL, a professional learning community dedicated to connecting teachers, educational leaders, and teacher-leaders. The conversation involved establishing and maintaining routines for both students and adult learners.
Some great tips popped up throughout the hour-long chat. One thread that was particularly engaging circled the use of music to signal transitions and create time constraints to tasks and activities.
#cuechat A1: Routines ensure everyone knows what to do and when to do it. A timer w/Mario ring tone is the signal to regroup & listen up.

My favorite routine-setters are @MrVaudrey Music Cues #goldmine #cuechat #connectedtl — Cate Tolnai (@CateTolnai)
There was one posted question which especially got participants problem-solving and digging deep into their toolboxes. Check it out here!
Feel free to join the #cuechat conversation on Twitter every Tuesday from 7-8pm PT. The #cuechat hashtag is a vibrant and exciting thread of communication throughout the week as well. Can’t wait to see you there!
