You have some great advice. I moved from 4th to 2nd a few years ago. I love 2nd grade and don't ever want to go back! They do love their teachers. However, it did take a few months of adjustment. 2nd graders need a lot of direction and modeling. They have much shorter attention spans. I do my whole group minilessons and read alouds on the carpet. I start of slowly at the beginning of the year with stations/centers and model every center activity we do. I usually have a wide range of reading ability levels from beginning kinder to early 3rd grade. Definitely brush up on guided reading.

Before going on TpT for task cards, look here. Unseen made hundreds of task cards that I still use.
