Hello! I have searched through the forums and found piles of advice, but I am hoping I can get something a little more specific for myself. This is my first year teaching, and I have first grade. I know what to do (and I am good at it!) once the routines are established, but I've never had experience or witnessed this. So, I have tons of questions, and don't know where to start...BUT mainly, HOW do I successfully establish these routines? What do I do with these children on the first day of school when I suddenly have their beautiful faces looking at me? How do I build a relationship where they understand I am "in charge" but not to be afraid of me? Thank you!!
