Greetings! This is my first post and I am so happy to be *here*! I am a first-year teacher and have enjoyed reading Harry Wong's book, The First Days of School. I want to implement his suggestion of practicing classroom procedures and routines for the first two weeks of school, but my question is: is it truly necessary to do it for two weeks? Within those two weeks, do you start to teach academic content? If so, at what point? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
