I'm new here and this looks like a great place for "new teacher" advice. I need a lot of that! I live in NC, but got a job teaching third grade in Georgia next year. I'm so excited! The thing is that I've been a teacher assistant in 1st and K for the last 3 years and just got my teaching degree. I'm confident that I can help my class succeed in 3rd, but haven't taught 3rd before. Right now I'm just trying to figure out what I will need to provide in my room for that age. I will be in a mobile (been there, done that) and so space will be very limited. I know that I need to have plenty of books for a classroom library. What else do I need? When I look at online sights I see so much stuff! What are some things that you guys have found to be really great in your rooms? Thanks!
