      Hi Alex,
      Have you checked out all the great resources in The New Teacher's Survival Guide?

        Also, for Kindergarten, a huge part of the first days of school is establishing a routine for the students.

        Here is my son's schedule this year as an example:

        8:40-9:00 Morning Work/Morning Meeting
        9:00-10:15 Math
        (10:15-10:45 Snack/Recess)
        10:45-12:15 Reading/Language Arts
        (12:15-1:00 Lunch/Recess)
        1:00-2:00 Centers, Art, Thematic Activities

          The routine of school has to be set or established. We come to school to learn and we can't learn if eveyone is doing their own thing. Think of it as teamwork! Where would any team be in competition if all players were on their own agenda?
