The paper is then focused on the introduction stage, its analysis from the viewpoint of microelements, and is concluded with an overview of the fundamental functions of the stage. This is followed by the empirical part with a description of a research, which purpose is to find out the importance of the introduction stage today, how much time teachers devote to it, but mainly what the teachers think of the influence of the stage on the quality of lessons and the knowledge of students. The questionnaire in the research was answered by 115 primary-school teachers of both teaching stages. The data were processed by SPSS. The research was enriched with the findings obtained from observing lessons and interviewing students. The results of the research show that the stage of introduction is important for the teachers and they usually allocate 3 to 5 minutes to it. The most attention is given to the psychological part of the introduction, meaning they are focused on how to form a motivational – learning friendly climate in the classroom. The responsibility for the introduction stage is carried by the teachers themselves, and most of them agree that its quality influences the efficiency of the lesson and on the value of students’ knowledge.
