FIRST DAY
First Day Advice in a Nutshell

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah

1- Establish routines: Children want and need to know the routine or procedure for such things as turning in homework or even lining up. Keep these routines in a notebook and/or posted for future reference.

2- Be firm and consistent: Set up your rules, role-play how each applies, and stick to the consequences right from the start. Look for the positive things going on as well! Recognize and praise!

3- Over-prepare: Have plenty of activities ready to start the first day. Begin a meaningful activity or project that the students can talk about with their parents that evening. Don't be afraid to start right into your curriculum. Keep things structured, but allow flexibility for team-building and get-to-know-you activities.
