I am looking for some guidance here. What better place to find the answer than blogland :)
So here's the deal.. I have purchased almost 1000 items from TpT (seriously! - teachers out there rock!) anywho, I am thinking about the first week of school. With all my new stuff, where should I start? I teach prek kids (special ed/reg ed inclusion ages 3-5) and I have total flexibility/control with planning/curriculum. I have a bunch of back to school units (Julie lee, Deanna Jump, Rachelle Rosenblit, and a bunch of others). I also have a bunch of name studies/activities, a ton of brown bear, chicka chicka boom boom and pete the cat stuff.
Part of me think go with names - BUT - will it make as much of an impression if they don't know their letters at all (very common!). Do I start with Brown Bear/Pete to focus on colors (while integrating other stuff) than move on from there?
So many choices! I cant imagine spending one week on a theme as I have seen on other blogs.
Thanks in advance for your input :)
