5 Mistakes Pre-K Teachers Make the First Week of School

1. Reading the wrong books the first week of school.

2. Going on a school tour.

3. Teaching an apple theme the first week.

4. Forgetting where they come from.

Remember that these children have only been alive for 4 years. Really think about that — only four. While some children may have come from a preschool or childcare setting, for many children, this will be their first ever experience in school.

You have to teach them everything, even the most basic things, like clicking marker caps, walking in line, staying in their seat at lunch. You will have to teach them how to use manners, show respect, keep their hands to themselves. This will be the first day that many will be in a structured environment. The first day they don’t get to watch TV whenever they choose. The first time they have to line up on the playground when the teacher calls them inside. The first time they don’t drink out of a sippy cup. The first time they hold a pair of scissors.

You will have to teach them to flush the toilet, wash their hands, and what not to do in a bathroom urinal. There’s so much for them to learn this first week of school! Remember they will not come to you knowing these things because this is their first time in school.
