Your room is so nice! I am moving into a newly built classroom that I have never seen. I won't be able to see it until a week before school starts. I am a veteran teacher but have been teaching at the same school for all of that time. I am very apprehensive and have been promised 35-40 fifth grade students this coming year. Any suggestions?
Okay... I'll need your answer on this to offer further advice. Will you have 35-40 students in a self-contained room, all day long? Or do you switch, and are these two separate classes? Do you teach all subjects or just one subject? I have never had more than 25 students, so I may need a little more information to respond to your question. It's definitely getting me to think!
Your room will likely be beautiful- a lot of newer rooms have great storage. Mine for the most part does, though it is an older room.
