This will be my first year teaching and I will be teaching 8th grade math. I am trying to figure out what to do on the first couple days of schools. I teach 1 period of reading and 4 periods of math for 45 minutes each. For the first day I have come up with assign seating, go over classroom rules and procedures, and have students fill out an information card. I am considering doing a get to know you activity. I would really like one that ties in math. Any ideas?? For the second day I am planning on giving a math assessment to see what they know and what they need to learn and plan the next week from that. Also I really like to reinforce positive behaviors in the classroom. Any behavior management plans I come up with I think are too elementary. Any suggestions are appreciated!
