Realistic Expectations of a New First Grader • Look at the Content Standards for Kindergarten. • Were your expectations aligned with the Common Core expectations? • Anything surprising to you? Unpacking Content Standards What’s New, Exciting and Different? • Read the content standards for first grade. • Notice any changes or additions to the standards?

Gallery Walk and Group Share Recess! Select a game from Unit 1 and play with a partner.

Classroom Climate How can I set up my classroom to get students to communicate? So What’s Next?
