Hands-on, practical guidance for getting started in the classroom. How you manage yourself and your class in the first few weeks as a qualified teacher will be a major factor in your success throughout the school year. This series makes specific suggestions for systems, processes and professional behaviour so that you can take practical steps to establish yourself in the first week of term. It also offers seating plans, timetables, games and activities, ideas for written reports and dealing with parents, and photo-copiable templates to assist with planning and teaching. With this resource you have the support you need to make your earliest teaching experiences both purposeful and enjoyable. Two books available: Years 1-4, Years 5-8.
This book was recommended to me by a friend who's been teaching for a few years now. Luckily I took her word for it (she calls it her 'Bible' and still uses it)... I can honestly say this is the greatest suggestion I've ever been given!! The book has so much practical advice on everything from behaviour management to classroom displays and more. An excellent choice for ANY newbie in the class. Highly recommended.
