I found out a couple of days ago that I will be teaching 2nd grade this fall. I graduated in May. The school that I will be at is a low income school. Also, I know that there will be nothing in the room. I have started to buy things on Ebay. I have some questions that I am hoping to have answered: What supplies do I need to start out with? School, is beginning on a Thursday. Do I go over the classroom rules the first 2 days and then dive into the curriculum on the following Monday? Do I have to have a "theme?" Out new teacher training is 3 days long. What can be expected? I student taught in fifth grade last spring. I know that 2nd grade is going to be totally different. I am a very outgoing person and I am not worried about being in front of the students. I am just not sure how to start out, etc. Any help would be most appreciated.
