    What grade do you teach? I teach grade 2 and I always have to keep in mind that my new kids are really still first graders,have been on vacation all summer and have been able to eat,sleep,play and pretty much do whatever they felt like (hey! just like me ). try to vary activities that require sitting,moving,listening,doing etc so they can maintain attention.I read aloud quite a bit at first. Give breaks as needed and have more things planned than you think they can accomplish. The attention span is short at this time of year. It DOES get better. But I've been at it for a while and the first few weeks ARE hard. Find a sympathetic ear in a nearby fellow teacher. Good Luck.
