I have two new Math classes this year. It can be quite challenging to handle new classes especially when we do not know the names of our pupils well yet.
In Singapore, the standard class size for upper primary students is about 40.
It would be really messy when we are not organised and I took the effort to print out the photographs of my new students with their names so that I can get their names into my memory asap.
The above videoclip can provide nice ideas and information for the first week of school especially for new teachers who may not have handled a class after graduating from the National Institute Of Education.
It is always great to learn from the experienced teachers and ask them what would work and what would not work so that we can face lesser hard knocks.
I do hope the above videoclip can give some nice ideas if you are a new teacher.
