So I'm moving from 5th to 6th, with a group that is moving from 2 classes of 30 to 3 classes of 25. I will be keeping some of my kids, while most of the others will have seen me for math last year. About 5 will be brand new to me. I'm just wondering, for those of you that have done this, how your first day and week looked. On one hand, the students are already going to have a pretty good feel for all my routines and procedures, since I'm not really changing much. On the other hand, there's been a summer in between, and I will still have some students new to me. In your experience, would it be worth treating it as a fresh start and a total new beginning, or can some of the beginning of year rules and expectations building be abbreviated a bit?
