    Great idea. I did a mini-one for several new teachers we got in the same year.

    Who do you ask when you need... supplies, a custodian, help with something.

    Lunch count, going to lunch, what if a child forgets his lunch procedures

    Setting up and maintaining a gradebook

    Dismissal procedures

    Recess

    Lesson plan helps

    Making copies--can you make your own, do you turn it in to someone? etc..

    Getting supplies needed

    Field trips

    Creating a substitute folder and what to include in it

    What you can and cannot say to a parent

    Retention procedures

    Where to go if you have questions about any of the contents of the book

    Class parties (our school has to all do the exact same thing at the same time)

    The gradebook was a big deal for our new teachers. We are only allowed to write in black and they were writing in all colors!

    A lot of these things are addressed in our handbook, but for some reason, new teachers are more likely to read this book than the handbook.
