Finally starting orientation throughout the county school board today, was told Thursday I will be able to set my classroom up, and Friday get my students. One day to set up, I was hoping for the weekend, so I could have my BF come help, I have a lot to do, and sure I'm not even thinking about everything. Like my BF asked what I was going to teach on Friday when I have my class. Well I thought it would be basically a day to get to know each other. I want to introduce myself, have my students introduce their selves to me, discus classroom rules and consequences, discus classroom procedures. I know one day will not be enough, but at least get them to introduced to them. I have same foam people I want them to make for my AR board, their really cute and the kids can make them look like them. I have some reading and Math games I am planning on using for centers so I thought I would split the kids up and let them play the games a little, plus they will be getting some reading and math in for the day. How does that sound for the first day, I have no idea really what they are even on Curriculum wise, guess I will find out Thursday while I am at the school. But actual lesson plans I feel so lost right now. Any ideas out there?? Just want to look like I have a glue, and not have the other 2nd grade teachers feel like the principal should have hired someone with experience.
