I was just hired as a kindergarten teacher for a private school. I am very excited but am not exactly sure what I should be "doing" right now. My classroom doesn't exsist yet (it is currently being built) and probably won't exsist until a week or two before school starts. I don't have a class list or anything so I can't start labeling or anything either. So, where do you all think I should start? I'd hate to be doing nothing right now and experience additional stress in August. What are you all working on this summer?

Congratulations! I'm still looking. Had some ideas for you: Is there anyone who can teach you whatever software they use at the school, e.g. some schools use grade speed. If your parents/guardians tend to use the internet you could set up a classroom website, I created a simple one using a Blogger template, then you could also upload newsletters to it during the year, homework, classroom rules, etc.
