Thump.......thump...thump..thumpthumpTHUMPTHUMPTHUMP the sound of your heartbeat as you wake from a horrible dream in the early morning hours of the first day of school. What was it?! Why?!
You start to run down your list, the bulletin board is done, you got the snacks ready, the copies are made of your syllabus and letters home, seating charts are ready, you have been practicing how to say that one name you just aren't sure how to pronounce, your outfit is ready, your car has gas, your coffee pot is ready, your lunch is already made, you even thought this year I'm going to start waking up early a few weeks before school so that first day (or week..or month) I am used to getting up early....so why are you awake at OMG IT's TOO damn early o'clock...then it hits you.
I don't have a couple of educational activities planned for the first couple of days to get to know my new learners...maybe I'm new to this grade level, maybe I'm a new teacher, maybe I just wanted to switch it up.
Let the power of your PLN help you out, here is a clickable resource for your first days of school, with grade level appropriate resources. Enjoy and get some sleep, your learners are counting on you.
