Do you have rest time? If so, do you have it every day? For how long? Do you have it the entire school year, or just for a short amount of time? The other K teachers in my school have a 20-30 minute rest time all year. Last year, I only had rest time 1st quarter. We had it last week, every day, for 15 minutes. I'm already going crazy!!! My room isn't huge and I have 21 students. They actually did really well, but I know that the more comfortable they are with one-another, the more they are going to start talking. I feel like it isn't a necessary part of my day, and it isn't a requirement. I think they need it for a little while, because they have been asking for it. Do you think having it for the first 3 or 4 weeks is long enough? Do you think parents would be upset if we stopped having rest time that soon?
