Every week is exactly the same. We do the same activities every week. I think this set up would be good for home-pre-school, so I thought I would share.
My day starts with an hour of homework. Every day.
Then we have a snack and recess.
Followed by twenty minutes on the computer. The students are only allowed on educational sites. Such as pbskids.org, coolmath.com, starfall.com or hoodamath.com. Starfall is great for younger kids.
Then we have twenty minutes of PE. This is different from recess because it is organized and they have to play the game we are playing.
The last thing we do each day is "rotation." This activity changes depending on the day of the week.
Monday: Prevention. This is typically a lesson on a social or life skill such as bullying, or being healthy. After Christmas we start with anti-drug with older children.
Tuesday: Science. This could be any kind of science experiment, lesson or activity. Currently I have done sound, volcanoes, and airplanes.
Wednesday/Thursday: Arts and Crafts. This typically goes with our theme for the week. ie This past week was Hispanic week, so we made pinatas and colored sugar skulls that they then put glitter on. Sometime we just color.
Friday: Creative writing/Math: I switch weeks with my co teacher. Sometimes we just hand out math work sheets and other times we play a math game. Or we may give them a writing prompt and have them write.
Fridays are longer than the rest of the week for after-school program. So we also have "sports" which I just let them have an extra long recess and every other week we have yoga. A yoga teacher comes in and teaches kid friendly yoga to the class. If we don't have yoga we have computers. Also on Friday we have "club." This doesn't go over well with my students. I make them play a game with me and then they have free time.
That is how my week goes.I don't plan or teach all the lessons because I have a team teacher.
