Switch to Middle School?

Hello! I recently joined your group because I am interested in moving from elementary (2nd grade) up to middle school because I think it will be a bit more challenging and interesting. Based on what I have read from your posts - about differentiation, project-based learning, dynamic interactions with students - it looks like I'm on the right track! My question to you is this - can you please give me some advice on what you do for classroom management? Creating a sense of community is very important to me as a teacher, and I am pretty proficient at doing so in a self-contained elementary classroom, but I'm wondering how to achieve it when I only have a group of 35 - 40 students for 50 to 90 minutes at a time. Please send me your thoughts, and convince me that it's a good idea to switch!! Thank you! Kim :)
