This is my 6th year. In year's past, I have gotten antsy with the curriculum ahead and didn't do enough procedures and rules at the start of the year. I paid for it in the end. This year, I have held very firm to procedures and rules. We are still practicing, role-playing, discussing, and learning my expectations every day. I can see it's starting to pay off :thumb:, albeit very slowly. My question is, some days I worry about time. On days we have to put away our notebooks and take them out again because we were talking too much, or lining up 5 times because it wasn't perfect, or stopping centers to re-group and go back, I worry I am losing time. The mornings are really good. After lunch I lose them FAST. It's been awful some days, but it is slowly getting better. In a sense, this is pretty new to me. I've never been this willful with my expectations for my kids for this long. I used to let a lot more slide and I'm feeling insecure about appropriate pacing. For example, my team has already launched 4 of our 5 Daily 5 centers last week, whereas I've barely launched 3. I keep reminding myself, "go slow to go fast" ...Right?
