#5 Do Everything Decently and in Order

Working in an organized space in an organized manner is the mark of a professional. We can all use improvement in this area since teachers are such pack rats!

#5 Do everything decently and in order – Our God is a god of order and purpose. He delights in order! We have it within us to do the same, even if it doesn’t seem to be our personality. Sometimes children don’t stay on task because our lesson is difficult to follow. You might find that you jump from one topic to another without much of a transition. Children perform better within structure when they can know what to expect next. Don’t make them guess. Write down what you will in what order so you have a plan to follow.
