It is getting close to back to school time! I have a $10 gift card that you can win to Teachers Pay Teachers!
It is easy to win...you just need to leave a comment about your best advice to a first year teacher! I'll be compiling ideas and sharing them on a blog post in mid-August!
My advice to a first year teacher would be to focus on building a classroom community while you are also teaching your expectations. It is so important for all students to feel welcomed and accepted at school by both their teacher and classmates. One way I try and build a classroom community is to include the teaching of social skills.
You can download this freebie of learning targets to help you get started! This is just one example that is included.
