Best of luck to you!

You have a good handle on what to start with, so just a few pieces of advice you can take or leave :-)

Whole group instruction plus Daily Five is exactly how I structure my day. Be prepared to teach them how to "do" Daily 5 centers - they may not have much experience.

Since you already offered to do a phone call, I think you should definitely follow through on that, but in the future, a weekly newsletter or update on Class Dojo should be good.

Be prepared to be strict on behavior expectations in the beginning and slowly ease back. Expect it to be like September all over again.

I don't know what a BHM sheet is, but I would say that my students are not super independent yet with anything that has too many directions or steps.
