Play lots of get to know you games. Sing! Check out the book The First Six Weeks of School from Responsive Classroom for great ideas and structure.

The past two years I've started two different classroom teaching positions at the end of September. I felt rushed and wish I had taken more time to build community feelings with students. I wish I had had more fun with them, laughed more, and not let the stress of the schedule take away from the great part of school. It is a long school year and all of the positives you do the first 6 weeks will carry you through to the end. Build those personal relationships with students and you'll be able to teach them anything!

Good luck! Don't be afraid to ask questions either. Find a teacher who is friendly and helpful.
