I know this sounds silly. but I am a relatively new teacher. That is my excuse (errr story, I always get these sayings mixed up) and I'm sticking to it. hahahahahaha Anyway, I am getting a new student on Monday (right after we all return from break). I have her name on her chair, cubby, coat hook, name on the wall with everyone elses. But the problem is I do not believe she has been in school at all. I think they home schooled her. But these aren't the type of parents that really did it. So how do I make it an easier transition on all of us. I already spoke with my class last Friday and explained that we would have a new friend and how they needed to teach her how to do things in our school. So what else can I do? And how do I fit one more kid in that classroom. We already are tripping over each other.
