What do y'all do during the first week of school? I'm new to first grade and my district has a very strict curriculum and I have seen what I'm supposed to be teaching the first week. Monday: Identifying Quantities 1 to 6 Tuesday: Identifying Quantities 1 to 10 Wednesday: Writing Numerals 0 to 9 Thursday: Matching Representations of 1 to 10 Friday: Recognizing Quantities by Sight So basically, it looks like I am doing a review of Kindergarten. I haven't received the Science stuff yet so I'm not sure what to do for that yet. Should I stick strictly to things or should I probably do two of these lessons a day and start week two on Thursday? I do know that in Texas at least, first grade is the year that all students are required to be in school, so I could possibly be getting some first time students who really don't know any of this stuff. I just feel like it may be difficult to expand these "lessons."
