A typical 4 year olds day at school

Well I haven't had the time to post here since I've been working all throughout my spring break. I'm happy I got into a daycare and gaining so much experience with kids. I teach 4year old kids and it just makes me want to travel back in time to when I was 4, I imagine my day just so carefree.

The first thing in the morning when the kids get to school, they get to play toys!!! I wish I get to play first thing in the morning too!!

Then after play time they sing along to a clean up song and they help each other clean up to get ready for breakfast (The breakfast is served to them in each table by ME!!!!).

After that its circle time!! I teach them with the mini lessons that are prepared, so they might learn something about puppies and after the lesson I organize the little ones into groups and they work together to color or do an experiment together with me.

After circle time I take them to the roof (depending on the weather) where there is a playground with slides and scooters and tricycles for them to run around and play.

Then, they go back to class and get to nap for 2whole hours!!! I wish I had nap time =( I have to watch them sleep!! Thats torture!!

When nap time is over, they wake up and there's food on their tables again so they eat another nutritious meal. They have rice or spaghetti, some fresh fruit and a carton of milk that they must finish.

After they eat its circle time again and that is when I review the mornings lesson and further elaborate on the subject for example, what are some other pets.

Finally after that, they play with toys again while waiting patiently for their parents to pick them up.

Doesn't a 4year olds day sound like something us as adult would like to experience again. Everything is planned out and we get nap time!! Wouldn't that be something?! Well I've been having lots of fun with my kids, even though it took me one full week to memorize all 20 of their names and faces. Talk about bad memory!! Well that's all for now, its time for me to catch up with some school work!

Stay tuned!! More next time.
