No matter what, take your time to teach all the routines and
procedures the way you want them. Now is the time to think
about how you want them to walk in line, hang up their things,
sit on the rug, etc. Decide what it should look like and what it
should sound like. Take it slow and easy, break it down into
individual steps - the time you spend in the beginning will pay
off the rest of the year. Don't expect to do any real academic
teaching for the first few weeks - it's all about routines and
Try and touch base with the returning K teachers at your school
to find out how things are done - some teams plan together,
some divide the work, and others do their own thing. See what
the expectations are as part of the team.
I just retired from teaching kindergarten and every year the first
couple of weeks are exhausting. During the summer, make and
freeze meals so that is one less thing you have to worry about.
Hope you enjoy kindergarten as much as I did.
