Brief Description: Students will organize panels in the sample comic in the order of their own morning routines.
Know Before You Start: Students should understand the meaning of routines and why they are important.
- Discuss the importance of routines.
- How many of you have a morning routine?
- How do those routines make us successful?
- Display the sample comic.
- Have students reorder the comic panels to match their own morning routine.
- Have students create a comic showing themselves completing a personal routine.
- Ask the students to share their personal routine comics in small groups or with a partner. Have them compare their routines:
- Is any routine better? Why or why not?
- How do routines help us with being successful in school?
- What if you changed a routine you already have, would that make you feel a certain way? Would it be better?
- What are some different routines we’d like to add to our day to help us be more successful?
- Allow students to use the speech-to-text feature.
Print and cut the sample comic into individual panels, and have students sort the panels based on their routine.
