    Hi and welcome! I am also a new 5th grade teacher this year. I've read the Harry Wong book and took a couple of ideas from there - especially about procedures which will be especially focused on the first week of school! I created a back-to-school PowerPoint presentation to introduce my students to the classroom rules and expectations as well as the schedule and homework policy etc.

    I would really like to get to know my kids within the first week of school too. On the very first day I am giving them a survey to fill out about their favorite things, likes and dislikes, and questions about school. I am also going to have them play a game which I found in another post titled "Welcome Back Bingo" I would also like to give my students some assessments, to see what they already know and what they are struggling with. During the first week I am going to assess their fluency and give them timed mini math facts tests.

    You will find lots of helpful information and great ideas all over this site. Enjoy!
