Mrs. Fultz's Corner is having a great linky!
My advice to new teachers would be.....
1. Try and stay organized, but figure out what works for you. Many times you'll see great ideas, but they won't quite work for you. Once you find what works, you'll know :) I tried to keep every guided reading group in one binder because it was supposed to keep my life organized :) I found that I work much better with every group in their own binder and everything is color coded (red, green, blue, yellow). Baskets, bins, etc all are organized by color.
2. Smile lots. You can't smile too much! I've learned that I can get any child to do what I ask, if I ask nicely with a smile on my face :)
3. You have the best job in the world. Some days it will be hard to remember this, but you are making a difference in the future. No other job has so much power.
