I graduated in May with an Elementary Education degree. I found out last week that I got a position teaching 5th grade. I am so excited, but also a little anxious about all that awaits me in my first classroom. I am a LIST person. I make lists for everything, and I love marking things off my list after I have done them. So what I am looking for is input on what things need to be done as far as preparing for my classroom goes....i.e. procedures/routines in place, bulletin boards, communication, etc. There is just SO much to think about and I want to make sure that I cover all of the bases. Any input would be great!
