This is my first year as a teacher, I have experience with daily 5 from my student teaching experience and have read the books and have joined the website and read the articles. I’m trying to create my first few weeks of lessons but I’m overwhelmed there is so much information and I’m not sure where to begin. Do I start out just teaching independence and routines such as the chimes, lining up, transitions, etc… or do I begin with read to self foundation lessons and introduce ten steps to independence. Its already July and I’m terrified.
