For me, morning procedures are important for my students to learn right away. I usually arrive at school early and also let my students come in early instead of having to wait until the bell rings for me to pick them up in another part of the building. When they come in they take care of all of their morning duties (lunch count, homework turned in, new homework is written in their agenda, pencils sharpened, restroom, etc.) quietly without my assistance since I am getting things ready for the day. They usually really do a great job with this because they rather be in the classroom with me than waiting for me to pick them up when the bell rings.
