    Hi,


    I'm a new second grade teacher who just got hired. School has been in for about two months. I'm so excited and extremely scared at the same time. I just don't know what to do and where to start. Please give me some suggestions on how to get ready for my classroom.

    I'm going to sub to this thread because I am in the SAME boat as you. I start in 2 weeks though (2nd grade) and I'm student teaching right now (4th grade)...

    First of all, welcome to A to Z! I think you'll find this site extremely helpful, particularly the message boards.

    I recommend perusing a few different forums: your grade level, behavior management, and new teachers (as a minimum).

    Talk to the teachers at your school and see if you can get your hands on lesson plans, extra materials, copies of their stuff... whatever they'll give you.

    definitely look to the other teacher's in your grade level and look at their behavior management plans, etc. they are your biggest asset.

    Thanks for the very helpful tips. I'll be sure to get with the teachers on my grade level at school.
