I sent home a questionaire asking parents when they would be willing to help out in our classroom and what they would be willing to help with (computer lab time, writing time, or prepping materials). I feel like I'm doing ok without any volunteers, honestly, but I have SO many parents that really actually want to help out a lot. They keep offering and reminding me to call them. Nine parents alone signed up with the PTO to be room parents! Anyway, I had a great response, but I'm just wondering what would be too much. We having writing time every day except Thursday, and I have enough parents to come in every time we write. I also have enough to come in weekly for prepping materials. Is that too much? I would have a total of 5-6 parents coming in to help out each week. I feel like that is just crazy! I honestly don't like having parents around...It makes me uncomfortable, which is why I have been putting off organizing volunteers for so long. But I could really use the help during writing time (21 kids and no aid), and I could easily find enough things for them to prep each week. I don't know, what do you guys think? What do you do?
