Hi everyone, I teach middle school science. My rosters were too low and administration decided to combine my 4 rotations into 3. It was really not that unexpected since one of my classes was teeny tiny. There is some over crowding in other courses in the school, so I was given a new course with kids from all over the school from 4 different teachers to create a new class for me and relieve their over crowding situation. I have never been through this before. I am not sure where to start on Monday. We are a month into the school year. My gut says to do some procedures, routines, rules and getting to know you type things but I don't want to give up any instruction time. Ideas?
