Daily routine

From Teflpedia

A daily routine is the things that someone does every day.

This is quite a popular thing to talk about at elementary level because (1) is uses the present simple and (2) it uses a lot of verbs, including some phrasal verbs. You can say why and when you do these things. It can practise the third person -s for talking about other people. And later it can be used to introduce the past simple as well.
