Hello Everyone, I have been reading this website for 2 years now and I finally got around to actually registering. I have been teaching Prek for 4 years now and I have landed a 4th grade position...yay me!! Anyways, I would love any advice I can get on what to expect from this age group. For example, should I look for tacks on my seat before I sit down? :lol: I am use to always walking in to class and being very happy, happy, happy but I have heard I need to be very stern the first couple of weeks and let the kids know who is boss. How are the first couple of days? Should they be completely structured like the rest of the year or are they usually pretty chaotic? I am use to spending the first week trying to get everyone to stop crying! Then looking forward to my glass of wine when I get home. So any advice would be great!! Thanks in advance!!
