    And, how long is your day?
    I teach 1/2 day K. It's a 3 hour program but next year, we are going to 3.5 hours.
    Just curious who else teaches 1/2 day.
    I'd love to chat more about it :)

    2.5 Hours

    I have the kids for 2 hours and 40 minutes and they have a special class each day for 20-30 per day.

    Did I mention that we are expected to cram in the entire curriculum in this time frame as well? ;-)

    3.5 hours sounds much better but it would be difficult with two groups back to back. Is that the situation you will be in?

    I teach 1/2 day- 3 hrs. with 30 min. special each day. I went to 3.5 when I didn't have a PM class coming in. Now I have 2 sessions so cut back to 3 hrs. It's a challenge to fit everything in.

    I am so jealous of you. I teach half day AM/PM. 2.5 hours each

    I teach AM/PM for 2 hrs and 50 with a 25 min special. It is a challenge but can't imagine doing AM/PM with a longer day. As it is, my lunch is 10 minutes shorter than everyone else in the building. I would be more than willing to give up the specialist if I had a longer time in between for prep. That is how it use to be when I first started teaching Kindergarten in the early 90's. It would give me a lot more flexibility in my daily schedule to fit everything in!
