I am certified in elem ed, I just graduated so this will be my first year. I just got a job in 6th grade and have no idea what to do...I am used to smaller children where I can decorate my room with cute things and have a treasure box and things like that! I have no idea where to begin in a 6th grade classroom. Bahavior management? Rewards? Decorations? Fun things to do? I did my internship in a first grade class and the kids loved me...I want the same reaction from these kids. I will have them all day long, they don't switch classes. It is a small charter school with 250 kids Kinder through 6. I will have 22 kids in my class. I am so scared that I will not know what to do!!! Please Help!!! I just got the job today (Aug 3rd) and I start on Monday (Aug 6) I will be undergoing curriculum training, but I really don't think I will be taught the things I really think I should know!
