A Day in Pre-K

A day in Pre-K is fast moving, action packed and fun! In the state of Florida we have FREE VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) in both private and public schools.  I teach in a public school and have a morning session and an afternoon session; each lasting 3 hours.


To start our day we make the mile hike (ok, maybe an exaggeration) out to our portable.  It is amazing how these little people have grown in just 3 short months and thrive on routine.  We start our day with our morning circle time. It is always fun to see what the  weekly calendar pieces will be for the month and my pre-k friends are growing in confidence as they lead the calendar time.


After we have danced, sang and introduced a skill or 2, we head to small group for more specific instruction.  I am very blessed to have a full time para in the room with me so we are able to reach each child during this hour.  She is my right hand and can't imagine my day without her.


We have worked hard and its time to move, jump and play.  Most days this means playground time.  Sometimes, it means music and movement in the classroom with some GoNoodle fun! Our afternoon group always asks, "Can we do points?" They might be a LITTLE competitive! (Yes, the letter P is missing because it is part of an Interactive Alphabet Activity.)


Back in the room we go for a water break and story time.  Story time is time to share a thematic book, teach a literary skill and work on our poem of the week.  We definitely have our favorite books and characters and love hearing new stories.


Their favorite part of the day has arrived!  Its center time.  Students choose from a variety of activities that have been planned to enrich the theme of study we are working on as well as student interests!

Its time to wrap up our day and yes, I get to do all this again with my afternoon group!

Its now time to head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to see what everyone else is up to...
