Title: The First Day of School:


1
The First Day of School
  • The Adventure Begins

2
The first day of school is one full of first
impressions Students size up the teacher and
the teacher sizes up the students.
3
The Teacher as Pack Leader
  • Like a pack leader who claims territory, the
    classroom teacher must also claim the classroom
    by being their calmly-asserting authority.

4
First to Arrive Last to Leave
  • Greet everyone at the door and
  • be at the door when students
  • leave. In essence, this action
  • says I welcome you into MY
  • space and now I bid you farewell!

5
Benefits of Claiming your Classroom
  • Direct students to seats.
  • Set the tone for the class.
  • Match faces with names.
  • Express clear expectations.
  • Set the days goals in motion.

6
Be Seated Everyone
  • The best advice to rookie teachers is to have
    an alphabetical seating chart on day 1 and keep
    it as long as needed (at least, until you know
    your students names and determine
    personalities). Then decide on a permanent
    seating chart (if needed). Tape names to desks
    at lower grades.

7
The Face has a Name
  • Learning student names should be your first
    major objective. This simple act tells students
    you respect them. You will also be able to
    quickly address misbehavior.

8
Idle Minds are Trouble!
  • Low expectations and free time are
    invitations for student misbehavior and allow
    student imagination to fill in the blanks. Have
    several activities (based on TEKS) as backups
    EVERYDAY!

9
Warming up the Brain Juices
  • Secondary and middle school students NEED a
    5-minute warm-up exercise daily. EC-4 students
    NEED a warm-up activity like art, or something
    physical.

10
Do as I Say AND Do!
  • Setting the tone means being consistent with
    rules and expectations.
  • Your reputation hinges on this!

11
Warning
  • Do not confuse being friendly with being a
    students friend. Being a students friend
    comes after you have established yourself as a
    good teacher and you have come to know your
    students well. Even then, you must keep a
    professional distance.

12
1st Day Tasks
  • Learn your students names within a week.
  • Assign seats at least until you know their names.
  • Clarify/explain classroom rules (about 3 to 5).
  • Discuss emergency and safety procedures.
  • Introduce yourself and make yourself interesting.
  • Assign textbooks if available.
  • Explain and post your grading system.

13
More 1st Day Tasks
  • Collect student info.
  • Discuss major projects.
  • Explain how/where/when students get extra help.
  • Explain the doghouse ticket plan.

14
Clothes Make the Teacher
  • Dress professionally. No fashion statements
    please! No dressing up like your students.
    Nothing too casual or risqué. Check with your
    school or districts dress code policy.

15
Activity
  • For Your Toolkit
  • Create a 3 to 5 classroom rule chart.
  • Write a short introduction of yourself you plan
    to use on your students.
  • Create a 4 to 5 step Doghouse Ticket plan you
    want to use in your classes.
