I am back for one more installment of "Dear Future Teacher...". This week we are talking all about what the first day of school looks like. I remember my first year planning the first day and trying to cram everything in. DO NOT make the same mistake I did - Go slow and teach them about everything in the room!
We head back on a Tuesday and for our district the kids always get out at 12:30 on Tuesdays, so teachers can have their PD hours. This is a nice way to ease into the year, but it doesn't give us much time to introduce everything!!
Of course - you need to make your schedule work for you, but if you have any questions about my first day of first grade - leave a comment - I would LOVE to help!
