What grade level? Kids actually thrive on routine. School has a lot of stress and anxiety for some kids. Part of that is not knowing what comes next/what will be expected of them. Establishing a routine eliminates this part of it. Also, if you have a routine in place, some kids will be able to carry on even if you have to stop classroom instruction for a phone call/visitor/behavior issue, etc.

Do as much as you can the same every time. For weekly subjects like Reading or Spelling Word work, Mon-intro new concept or idea, read story together Tues-blah blah blah, and so on. The next week do it the same way just insert the new story title, concept and vocab. The structure, instruction, layout remain the same each week.

It doesn't have to be too boring or too fancy. You can use a menu or tic tac toe board for variety. There are also listings online for 60 ways to study your spelling and so on.
