Hi Gail! I would love to hear more about what you are looking for in terms of being in place. If you are talking about math structures, I think establishing a growth mindset and culture of learning is so important to launch the year. It creates a comfort level among the students. I do this through Number Talks (which you can easily do with a 4/5 class) and Talking Points. Here is a link to the ones I do on my first day of school that I think may be helpful in your beginning of the year planning: https://mathmindsblog.wordpress.com/2014/09/06/week-one-talking-points-math-mindset/ I am happy to answer any other questions if that is not what you were meaning at all by your question :) Good Luck!
