Clip to ScrapBook #4

Congratulations! Last year was my first year teaching first grade (and a first year teacher too). Believe it or not, I made it through, some days better than others, but we had fun. Yes, the other responses are so correct. Practice routines, rules, & procedures, but make it fun. I plan on doing what some one else suggested, read Chrysanthemum, then have them clap out the syllables in their name, then have them put their name card on the word wall, which leads in to discussing The Word Wall. We'll then do a name activity asking each child to name something they like beginning with their first letter. My name is Sally and I like sandwiches...

Not sure if you will do guided reading, but getting a binder and necessary record keeping is so important. I never got mine together until sometime in November, and then it made my life easier. All I can say is Teachers Pay Teachers and Pinterest are a life saver!

Good luck to you.
