CBM3 – Be Welcoming on the First Day

Objective:  Learners will plan how to address the sources of student anxiety on the first day of school and outline their rules and grading policy. 

You have taken the time to plan out the physical layout of your classroom.  You have thought about how to get everything organized.  Now it’s time for the show to begin and it’s natural to be a little anxious before the first day of school. 

The first day can be an intimidating experience for both you and your students, so it is important to orchestrate this initial meeting to calm everyone’s anxiety.  You want to show that you are confident, prepared, and excited to have your students in your classroom.  Your confidence will help the students feel comfortable in your classroom and set the tone for establishing positive relationships.
