During the first lesson

Introduce the learning path, learning objectives, and evaluation practices of the learning period.

Divide your students into groups and do team building exercises to support a sense of togetherness.

Instruct students to try to do the first assignments in a small group and ask for assistance from the teacher if needed. First, it is advisable to choose easy "entrance assignments" that will help you learn more about the learning style than the contents of that subject.
