    Hello! I am currently looking for a job; first year. I was told to buy the book The First Day of School by Harry Wong. I purchased that book yesterday. Does anyone know of any books that would be especially helpful, or have any SUGGESTIONS? I am nervous and I like to be prepared, but from what I heard, I easily could be hired two days before school starts!! :eek:
    My certification is in Elementary Education K-6. Thank you bunches!!!

    I love The First Day of School by Harry Wong. I am a first year teacher too. I was just hired this week to teach 2nd grade. I would love to buy some more books too. I hope you get some good responses. If I think of any I will let you know. Good luck in your job search. I was afraid of not being hired until school started too. Just keep applying and you will find something.

    That Harry Wong book is awesome. My state provides it to all new teachers at the mentor/mentee training.

    "The First Days of School" is great! I also like "Teaching with Love and Logic".

    Someone recommended The New Teacher's Complete Sourcebook (Grades K-4) by Bonnie P. Murray to me. I read it last year and will re-read it this summer since I am still looking for a job! This book is by Scholastic and I found it at my local teacher supply store!

    Book

    I use the book The First Six Weeks of School. You can order from the Northeast Foundation at responsiveclassroom.org I've been teaching 15 years and found this book a few years ago and have used it ever since. It has a schedule that you can adapt, making, modeling and roleplaying class rules and procedures, logical consequences and Morning Meeting. It really helps to set the tone for the school year and the students become a community of learners.

    Don't forget Jane Nelsen's Positive Discipline in the Classroom. Great helps and forms, etc. at the back of the book you can use.

    Also, my absolute favorite text from teacher ed: Your First Year of Teaching and Beyond by Ellen Kronowitz. This is a book I will tab and keep in the classroom. From set-up to supplies to curriculum planning and classroom organization, this book is full of tips and samples.

    I found this book at amazon.com for only 19.99 and if you spend $25 there is free shipping. I like the book too! I like how it actually gives a schedule that you can adapt.
