I was just hired as a school writing teacher. I will be working with grades K-5 as a push in. I feel like I should start planning, but don't know where to begin. Should my school be giving me a curriculum guide that I can use that as my basis for planning? Also, does anyone have ideas on how to organize my things for each grade. I was thinking of getting binders for eacher grade and using the dividers for each month, to keep all my plans in. I was also thinking of color coding each grade, with folders to keep their work organized. I guess I'm, considered a special teacher (along with music, art, etc.) So does that mean I don't really have to worry about setting up procedures and classroom rules- since I won't even have my own room. I would just follow the procedures and rules of the teacher's room I am in. I'm sorry for this long post (which probably doesnt even make sense) I just feel overwhelmed and not sure where to begin. So any advice at all would help.. thanks so much!
