Hi, all! I've been mostly a lurker, but wanted to reach out to all you wonderful people! I'm really excited! I just got my first teaching job! I will be teaching 3-5 SDC. I started off wanting to be a high school English teacher, then a high school SDC teacher, and finally an SDC elementary teacher. All of my student teaching experiences have been at the high school level, so elementary is a little new to me. I'm looking for ideas for the first day and first week of school. School doesn't start for awhile, so I don't have access to student records or IEPs yet. I'm just wondering how teachers plan their first days. I plan to dedicate a lot of time to establishing procedures, ice breakers, story time, and arts and crafts. Does anyone have a day one schedule they could share with me? Also, what are some of the your favorite resources related to elementary school teaching and special education? Thanks in advance!
