New to First Grade



I was recently hired to teach first grade, and I'm starting on Thursday! I do not have any primary experience as most of my teaching experience is grades 3-5.

Can anyone give me any advice/tips for working with first graders? Because I'm taking over for a teacher midway through the year, I'm planning to keep the routine and behavior plan that she has in place, but any songs, transition ideas, etc, would be great!

Thank you in advance:)

I think Dr. Jean is a good place to start. I am sure there are other sites to help. I think it is www.drjean.org. She has a lot of little cute ideas to try.
