Developing a schedule for a classroom is not an easy task. In this assignment, you will create your own schedule for a preschool classroom.
Part I - Not to exceed 1 page in length
Imagine you are a teacher for a preschool classroom. Create a schedule that begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. Your schedule should include all aspects from arrival of the student to the departure. Be specific and detailed, similar to the schedules shown in Chapter 3. When making a schedule, teachers need to consider each of the following: early childhood philosophy; the needs of the children; a balance of activities (child-initiated and adult-initiated; individual, small-group, and large-group; quiet and active; indoors and outdoors); the needs of parents; and time for routines, transitions, and extended center time for in-depth learning.
Part II - Not to exceed 1 page in length
Explain each of the areas listed above (in italics). Give an example of how you approached each of those areas in your schedule.
