So I have an unusual class makeup this year to begin the year (are we surprised? I think I post that same sentence every year...)... We got our state grant for our PreK program, which is great, but it means that we have to re-screen all the kids we saw last spring. Many will qualify for classes... but rather than pay us to come in before school starts and re-screen them, we're doing it the first couple of days of classes since I have mornings free until our EI kids start coming. So here's my problem... I'm starting with 5 kids. WONDERFUL!!! I had 3 of them last year, which is no problem, and I'm looking forward to seeing them all again. The other 2 were at a different school in the same program. I would guess that in the first 2 weeks of class, maybe even before that, I will gain at least 7 more. So, what to do those first few days? I hate to give all the "how to clean up" and "how to use..." lessons when I know the rest of the class will need those lessons... the ones I'm starting with have already been in school last year, these new ones won't have that experience. How do I get through the first couple days without needing to reteach EVERYTHING in week 2 when I double the class??????
