Moving to K!

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello all,
I just found out I received a permanent teaching position for the fall in a Kindergarten classroom. I have taught gr. 1 for 10 years, so I am thinking that this will be quite the change. We just moved to a new city so this will also be a new school division for me. The jobs are highly sought after so I feel very fortunate to get on, but I need some words of encouragement. I am so nervous about making this change...

Also, I would love to hear some advice from people. Do you have any "must have" resources for teaching kindergarten? Anyone willing to share schedules, plans, or units with me? I would truly appreciate any help to get me started. I should mention that it is half day kindergarten.

Thanks in advance and Happy Easter!

I, too, taught first grade for ten years before making the move to kindergarten. I've been in K ever since (16 years) and I still LOVE it. I still remember the August day when I got the phonecall telling me that my request for a transfer to K had been approved...I think the whole neighborhood remembers!!
Half-day K is definitely a challenge but your first grade experience will be a great help. Just keep thinking about what you wished your little first graders knew when they started the year with you!!! You'll be great!!!! I can feel the enthusiasm in your post!!!!
Congratulations!!!!

I currently teach 1/2 day kindergarten and love it. You will love the little ones. I have copies of my schedule, plans, and lots more. 1/2 day K is a big challenge with so much that has to fit in a 2 1/2 hour schedule. I can't post yet but if you email me I can forward you things that might be helpful. pamyarb at comcast dot net Good luck!

I just found out yesterday I am moving to K. Not by choice either. But it has had time to sink in and I am excited to start a new chapter in my life. I taught gifted for 2 years; 3 for 5 years; 4 for 5 years; 1 for 4 years and now have been told I need to go to K. I am excited, yet very nervous at the same time. I know that is a lot of work to take on those little ones who come in with almost nothing.

I am very excited....and a little nervous. I had put in for the request and just found out today that it is going to go through. I absolutely love 1st grade however, need a change. What are some good online resources, books, etc....that would help with my summer preparation?

Thanks in advance.
