I am teaching my first year as a preschool head start teacher (for low income families) in a public school. I've taught before (pre-k head start, 2nd grade, and kindergarten). I have a boy who is a runner. I literally chase after him. It's terrible. Already started the SRBI process for him. I'm having trouble with my schedule. It must be posted on our door. 8:30 – Arrival 8:45 AM – Breakfast & Tooth Brushing 9:15 AM – Circle Time 9:30 AM – Center Time 10:50 AM – Outdoor Time 11:40 AM – Circle Time 11:50 AM – Lunch 12:30 – Home My question is this... I like to do a quick "hello" song with kids, before breakfast, and some kids get dropped off (4 of them) while rest of them go on bus. Bus has been arriving at 8:45. So, kids read books on carpet until then or I read to them, wash hands, and wait for their friends. Sometimes we start breakfast early. Should I just wait until after breakfast to sing the hello song so we aren't doing a lot of sitting? Or should I write, Arrival and Greeting together? What do you think? Also, after Center Time, I have kids sit on the carpet on their names (tape with names on it) before going outside. That is a good procedure correct? TIA!
