    okay so i am kinda upset that i don't have my kinderkids until 2:15. i used to get them at 1:00 when they got up from their nap and were ready to go but i am worried now that at the end of the day they will be too tired to come to class and run around. they come to PE everyday for 30 minutes.

    are they doing to be whiny and out of energy by the time i get them for my class? i am trying to figure out any adjustments that i need to do to get prepared for them.

    thanks.

    My kiddos do not have a nap, but I find that they are still full of energey at the end of our day (3:25)

    I have found the same to be true. It seems their tiredness is more a lack of ability to focus but their energy level never seems to be an issue (maybe for a few kids), so PE sounds like a good plan at the end of the day. I usually have my recess later in the afternoon.

    I also think they will be fine. My kids are always full of energy-unless I am asking them to do something they don't want to do. I don't think there will be any problem. Good Luck!:)

    I think having P.E. at the end of the day is great for the little ones. By the end of the day their brains are on overload and they all want to get their wiggles out.

    Oh my I had gym at the end of the day this year 2:40. I didn't like it bc it was such a long day with no specials. Sometimes they were wild at the end of day sometimes good. Really depended on what kind of day they had.
    No matter when they go they will love it. My kids favorite special was gym.

    Kindergartners are amazingly resilient! In the past, we've had PE the last 45 minutes of the day, and it's never been a problem.

    Somehow, the kids were always recharged the minute we walked in the gym. We'd take our backpacks to the gym, and then after PE, everybody would troop, all tired and happy and sweaty, back to the front of the school for dismissal.

    I think it will work for you. :)

    I think they will have even more energy from having to contain it so long!
