I arrive at 3P.M. and either get an empty table or one with only a few backpacks and jackets on it. For a craft day I put out the tablecloth and materials. The activity is explain and assistance is given if or when needed or asked for. If it's BINGO the children come as soon as the game is on the table, other wise I call out, not to loud, that I have certain games & ask who wants to play. If nobody comes over to me I look for children who are not busy & ask if they would like to play a game. I usually have four or five games with me.
After the activities I help pack up backpacks and lunchboxes so all materials are ready to go home.
If time permits, I ask the co-workers if they want anything from the teacher center then go there.
I work and get along well with my co-workers.
The hardest part sometimes is to find an activity the children like to do and crafts for the older children(preK to 6 grade).
What I like the most is doing the crafts and playing games with them.
