I was hired at the beginning of the year to teach 6th grade LA and SS half-time. Yesterday I interviewed for a 1st grade position that starts in January for the 2ns semester and I got the call today that I got the job I will be looping to 2nd grade with these children next year. My question is, I want to do an organization binder (moose, bee, etc.). Is it ok to start this half way through the year? I havent went over all the details of the job, like what they are doing now but I have tons of ideas that I want to do regardless. I graduated a year and a half ago and have wanted to teach 1st ever since. I finally have the chance, but I know that huge change can be hard for 1st graders. I think that it is really important for them to be organized and responsible (especially after dealing with my current 6th graders who never do hw or return things). I am so excited to move grades and have a full time job but I am also nervous about coming in half way through the year. Has anyone else experienced this type of situation?? Thanks!!
