A typical day at work for me starts with childrens arrival at 8:00am we transition from the bus to our classroom and have breakfast, we then use the restroom and start our day. We have small groups where the children work on specific areas that they may need help with such as colors,cutting, writing own name, alphabet, and much more, we then go to large group where we sing many educational songs and read stories, we cover many themed areas each week so this time is based on our theme for the week, our group then trasitions to our various learning areas in the room that are set up to also go with the themes for the week, as the children play in these areas we go and play with them observing what they are doing, saying and taking antidotal notes,we announce a 5 min warning that our time is almost up and we will be moving on to our next activity. This may incluce outside walks, gym time, or play ground activities. Then we again make 5 min warning the we will be moving on to go home. Its a very busy day with lots of laughing and loving moments on both parts of the students and teachers.
