1st grade teachers!!

After 11 years in 4th grade, I will be teaching 1st grade. Can anyone tell me things I will need to get for this new grade? Also, if anyone has any creative activities they have done or special things you do with your clas, I would really appreciate it.

Everything for AT LEAST the first 2 weeks of school is classroom management. I taught K for 4 years and moved to first. I thought they were going to be capable of so much more, but really, Sept.-Nov. was like teaching K without an aide (which my district has) . Once they get to be indpendent it's great because they are still cute and sweet at that age Chat Icon Good luck!

ITA! I've been teaching kindergarten for 14 years- without an aide (my district doesn't have them as well) and everything is management...

quick advice- although 1st graders can do more than kinders still find your "helpers"- who can tie shoes, who are good on the computer, who can zip, button, etc... make them your go to kids and you'll get more done. It helps tremendously!

good luck!
