Moving Your Magnet in the Morning
This ritual or routine is important because this is the way that our class tracks who is here each day in our classroom and if someone is absent. If this job wasn't done at all we would be in even deeper trouble because then the people who did lunch count and attendance would be even more confused. If this routine was done when it wasn't needed to be done (like if someone was absent and someone marked them present) then there would be even more trouble because if something had happened to that kid, like he/she ditched school, we would be in very big trouble, and it might mot end well.
This routine makes us a student-lead classroom because it is our responsibility to remember to move our magnet in the morning, it is not the teacher's responsibility to remind us. Even if we do forget though we will still have our fellow classmates to politely remind each other. What the teacher would have to do if we didn't do it on our own is he would have to do a give-me-five himself and tell us to move our magnet. If he was forced to do this I think it would be a waste to have a student-lead classroom because we didn't even act like one.
