Don't forget administrators, child study meetings, ever changing curriculum, dealing with curriculum coordinators, lesson plans a mile long, losing your voice in the first 2 weeks, how to pick a good pair of shoes and the dreaded parent/teacher conferences... Just to name a few!

Books with great rhyming texts. Fun to read but great stories too. #kidlit
Letter Pops- For a few dollars and a few minutes you can create some great LETTER POPS for your classroom. You will need a set of magnetic letters and jumbo craft sticks. Glue a magnetic letter to each craft stick. (I LOVE E6000 glue that you can get at Walmart or hobby stores.) Pass these out to the children to hold up as you sing alphabet songs, such as “Alphardy,” “Who Let the Letters Out?” “Letter Pops”, etc.
Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up! wow this is such a good idea! if they mess with the bottle their time out time is longer... interesting
