Help! I just found out that I will be "teaching" art to a group of 20 preschoolers in about 2 weeks! Our school received a grant to start a preschool class in our elementary building and in order for the teacher to get her contractual 40 minute prep, the specialists are being tapped for one 40 minute class a week. These 4 year olds will have a full day because there isn't enough money in the budget for transportation to do two half day sessions. I cannot imagine that a full day is a wise choice for any 4 year old.... but that's how it's going to happen! I will have the option of going to their classroom or having them come to mine - right now I'm planning to go there (no bathroom facilities in my room), but I'd love to hear your thoghts on this. Any help will be appreciated - lessons, activities, etc. I am having a hard time getting excited about taking on an 8th prep!
Looking forward to your feedback
