I am a new VPK teacher and I am confused as to what my schedule should look like for a 3-hour day. I should be focusing on early literacy, but should this be geared toward academics or more free centers?
Also, i'm a full-time teacher. So does that mean my planning time starts at 12:30pm when they move to another classroom for nap-time? Right now I am co-teaching the deaf and hard-of-hearing kids that are also part of my classroom. They stay awake and after lunch the deaf educator and I split the group to teach language and math. Should I be doing this, or is my planning time supposed to start when my VPK kids go to nap?
I would appreciate any help!
