We need to remember the backgrounds that our students come from. And we can’t assume that just because we have kids in the middle class that they are coming from homes that have everything together.
We also need to remember the kids who are new to the school, or those who are maybe joining an inclusion class from being in lab all day the year before. Most kids will come back eager to see their friends and ready to make new ones, but some kids will not have anyone.
There are several ways I work to ease my students’ first day jitters.
