new teacher..supplies, what to do first day/week It is all half days and its a private school so students will be required to buy their own supplies. I was planning on giving out the supply list the first day hoping they could have stuff in by Friday. I was going to give my class rules the first day, but then what? Should I have enough supplies for the entire class the first day like crayons and stuff so they could draw and write about what they did over the summer? I could assess their writing a little then? What should I be doing the other 2 days?
