So I thought it would be interesting to get some thoughts from my Facebook readers. I asked them, “What is the one thing you learned about teaching after your first year that you wish you would have known BEFORE you started that first year?”
Here’s what they said:
If I have to agree with so much of what is already stated above. The things that are going to help you survive that first hear are the same things that will make you successful any year that you teach.
Have a good management plan! If you want to find out more about mine from last year, you can click on the picture below and even get some free classroom rules posters.
Head on over to Sharing Kindergarten to link up and find more new teacher tips.

I am a new teacher, but I linked up because I have learned a lot through subbing in a K-1 extended resource room and I am hoping to receive some comments from more experience teachers. I will begin my first teaching position as a resource teacher for grades 2-6 this fall. I am very nervous about the first week. You don’t learn that kind of stuff during student teaching or when you’re subbing. I will mainly be in regular ed classrooms, so I am kind of stuck on how my management plan is going to work. I have considered giving out caught being good cards to my resource students (most of them will be behavioral issues). When they get so many of them, they can come into my room and get a prize. I’m still thinking on how to work this out. I am a new follower!

I love the WBT method… I used parts this last year and am going to go into next year using more. I really made a difference in my class! I have made the ELA Power Pixs K friendly if you are interested at my TPT store: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/WBT-Power-Pix-Kindergarten-Cute-707892
I have a question I was hoping you could poll your readers–Target has their plastic magazine holders in the dollar spot and I cant decide if I want a class set or not for holding their readers. Can you ask the question of the what is the preferred holder: plastic magazine holder, cardboard magazine holders, or large plastic bags
