Hello fellow first grade teachers~ I was wondering how you start your first day with your first graders. I will be going into my second year of teaching in first grade but didn't experience the first day of school last year (I came a week late). So I am curious on what things you do and what type of activities you conduct. I am also wondering what you have the students do when they first come into the classroom. I keep having this dream that all my kids are coming into the class at once and parents are wanting to talk to me and the class gets out of control cause no one knows what to do when they come in. So......with that in mind...I'm wondering what do you have them do if you do have parents wanting to talk to you.
