Need Lots of HELP

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I posted on the wrong posting board previously. I'm facing my 1st year as a teacher and I'm terrified. I've worked as an AA at an at-risk highschool for a few years yet I've never taught in the room. I've subbed, assisted but never anything on my own and on an ongoing basis. Does anyone have any advice that me help me?? I'll be working w/ 3-5th graders at a traditional elementary school so I'm a little relieved by that. I'm fun, energetic and typically very organized but I'm venturing into new territory.

ANY AND ALL ADVICE WANTED!!!! :-)

It is so easy to nice and friendly and smile alot, but don't fall into the trap.... I have learned that it is very important to be consistent in everything. It sounds like you will be pulling kids out of the classroom. Try having assigned seats in groups and very detailed procedures for getting from one place to another. I hope this helps.

I second the previous poster, but I would even put it stronger...PLAN ALL YOUR PROCEDURES in detail. Then take the time to teach them all. Do not assume children will understand what line up means or how to use a restroom safely. Do not assume the know how or when to get up and get a tissue or sharpen a pencil. If you teach it, you can hold them accountable to your routine...which makes it much easier to get through a day. Hopefully, by thanksgiving or so, the kids will be so ingrained in how it's done that they will just do it.

Hi,
Get the book: The First Days of School by Harry K. Wong and Rosemary T. Wong.
I am beginning my second year and wish I had had it before my first!
Excellent book and defines how to set up procedures.
