I've taught preschool for a few years but it was in a private school. Now, I've graduated with my masters and will be teaching 1st grade in a public school. Literally, it's so different and I feel like this is my first year. I need help... what should I do first? What needs to be done before the kids get there? Also, I need a creative way to manage my children's behavior (both positive/negative behavior). I was thinking of something like Stay on the Green since I am doing a frog theme. Any help or pictures of classroom management ideas would be SO APPRECIATED! THANKS!! PS Is it normal to be so SCARED and afraid that you will fail as a teacher?
