    Wow. How'd you get a class for 5 and half hours? Is that considered full or half day? What do you do after this class leaves?

    I teach a full day. My students are special needs, so we are in the regular school. I have busing in the afternoon from 2:00-2:30, so I only have about 45 min. before my contract day is over.

    Pre-K Teachers - daily schedule

    I am also interested in what other teachers do. I am always looking for good ideas. Here is my daily schedule.
    I teach Integrated Early Childhood Special Education in a public school system. Some children have special needs and some do not.
    Morning class: 3- and 4-year-olds [I have 7 students in this class.]
    7:50-8:10 Arrival
    8:15 Breakfast in school cafeteria
    8:45 Center Time: I have 4:Housekeeping, Art/Music,
    Blocks,Puzzles. And we use the computer. Also during
    this time, my Para and I work with small groups of 2 or 3
    children.
    9:50 Circle Time
    10:10 Snack Time
    10:30 Recess
    11:00 5 students go home.
    One of my students stays all day, and one stays until
    11:30 when a Head Start bus picks him to spend the rest
    of the day there. These two go to lunch at 11:00.
    Afternoon class: 4- and 5-year-olds [I have 8 students.]
    11:30 Students arrive for afternoon class. We wash hands and go
    eat lunch in the cafeteria.
    12:10 Circle Time
    12:40 Recess
    1:00 Center Time (same "procedure" as above)
    2:00 Snack Time
    2:30 ABC Time
    3:00 They all go home.
    This is not real detailed. I might be leaving something important out. This is my 7th year teaching early childhood, and this schedule has worked best for me. I have students who are pulled out at various times during the day for physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or speech. Fortunately, there is a therapy room right up the hall in my building so they don't have to go far.

    Hey Seich-
    I'm surprised that you eat so much.
    Breakfast-snack-And lunch
    Seems like that takes away from valuable time for centers and such.

    We eat breakfast only (no snack) in our 2 1/2 hour program and if
    I could-I would get rid of that.

    (We do not live in a poor neighborhood-and I know most of my kids eat

    before they come to school.)

    I teach in a poor neighborhood and most of my students don't eat well at all. Our snack usually consists of fruit or juice that was provided with their breakfast. This age doesn't eat much at one time. The teacher next door has 2 snack times, one before they leave for home. Some of my kids come on the bus around 7:15 and don't leave until 2:15. It is a long day for them--at this age they really need to eat something every 2 hours or so!

    I am not teaching in a PreK program at the moment, but here is what our basic schedule was (and I know still is, the teacher who took over is using my schedule):

    9:15 - 9:35 Table Time (fine motor activities on tables, puzzles, playdough, writing center, scissor activity, legos, etc.)

    9:35 - 9:40 Cleanup Tables

    9:40 - 10:00 Circle Time

    10:00 - 10:40 Centers (at this time the project of the day would be done in small group also)

    10:40 - 10:50 Cleanup

    10:50 - 11:05 Music/Movement or Science Experiment

    11:05 - 11:20 Snack and Story

    11:20 - 11:45 Scheduled Gym Time (we didn't have a yard for recess so everyone had a time slot in the gym)

    11:45 Goodbye (quick circle, sing songs, pass out papers, etc.)
