3 Must-Do's for the Beginning of the Year

3 Must-Do's for the Beginning of the Year


Episode Summary

The beginning of the school year is such an exciting and exhausting time!  Isn't it funny how we forget how little and new our students are when they start?! It's like we have to reset our brains back to beginning after sending on last year's students.

There is so much to teach our new little friends before we can have a functioning, well-running classroom.  The work at the beginning really does pay off later in the year - however - it doesn't make those first few weeks (months?) any easier!

Listen in as I discuss my 3 R's for the beginning of the year!
