    Hello all,

    I am a first time teacher. I will be a first grade teacher at a school that belongs to Charter School USA!!!! I am so happy and excited!!!

    My degree is not in Education and even though I had followed all the steps into obtaining my certification and I have taken the FTCE exams I know I have a lot to learn.

    Anybody with experience working for Charter Schools USA that can give me some information on what to expect from the Teacher Induction Program?

    The main question I wanted to ask is if you could recommend a book for a first time teacher for first grade...

    Thank you...

    The Threads of Reading: Strategies for Literacy Development
    by Karen Tankersley. I would say this is one of the best books I ever read and it's just over 100 pages so it's not a textbook. Comes with many strategies and lesson ideas as well.

    Also :
    Harry Wong the First Days of School
    Fred Jones The Tools for Teaching

    I'm a first year first grade teacher at a charter school as well, although I've never heard of Charter School USA. I really love the book Everything You Need to Know to Teach First Grade by Pat Barrett Dragan. I second Wong's First Days of School.
