    I recently moved to Missouri from Virginia and I just got a job teaching 4th grade. The school is creating a new class due to large numbers of students in the existing rooms. They are taking a few kids from the 11 4th grade classes to create the one I will be teaching. Any advice on creating a strong classroom community and procedures when I am getting kids that have been in 11 classes for a quarter?

    Thanks!

    Start out like its the first day of school. I know that the curriculum has to be taught, but I would spend the first few days going over routines and procedures. They will probably want to remind you how the other teachers did things. Just explain that they are making a new class and that means new rules and procedures.
