Hi, I am a first year teacher, going through a career change, I have taught college and worked in the business arena. This is exciting and scary. Thank you so much for all the ideas, I will be putting them into action very soon. I love the idea for the lunch count, that will be one of the first things I put up.
As for an ice breaker I thought about playing a sorting game with the children. First yellow shirts here, blue here, red here, etc. Say Hi to each other and tell your name, then switch and everyone with blue eyes here, green eyes here, brown eyes here, same and switch to another sorting method.
Any tips anyone wants to share with a new Kindergarten teacher would be greatly appreciated.
