Hi everyone! I am a brand new teacher who graduated with my masters this past May. I have lived in NY most of my life and just moved to Florida a few weeks ago and will be teaching 5th grade. I am really excited. However, my situation is a bit stressful. The school is not completely built yet. We won't be able to move into it until the end of December (hopefully!). In the meantime, we will be in portable classrooms. However, we can't even get into those yet. The curriculum is still on order, and the principal has no clue when it will come in. We have been advised on not bringing too much into the classroom at first because we will eventually be going into the new school. What can I do in the meantime when it comes to curriculum? What are the basics that I should put into my temporary classroom? Also....when I student taught, I taught in a primary school building and a middle/high school. Any suggestions on what a 5th grade classroom should look like/contain? If anyone can offer any advice, I would be forever greatful. Thanks!!
