  4. Second grade is so fun! I taught it my very first year of teaching. I liked it a lot, but the next year I found out that fifth grade is the spot for me! Enjoy teaching second! They are still cute and cuddly but are (mostly) independent and can follow instructions (most of the time!). Best of luck!

  12. Enjoy second grade! The first day is low key. We visit different areas of the school for the benefit of new students, go over classroom rules, read books and do group activities. Even though I have some returning students in my multigrade Special Ed class, we work to make sure everyone has a great day!

  17. My first day of school tip is to just settle in and get to really know your students. Don't jump into curriculum, if you can, for a few days so that you can develop a sense of safety and community in your classroom.

  25. My tip is to have a list of stickers with students names already printed and bins to put supplies the students bring in to the room. That way you can take them up and stick a sticker on at the same time. Also dress pretty and smile!

  26. My tip is to overplan...better to have plenty to do than nothing at all! But also remember that everything takes one hundred times longer than you think!
