A day in Pre-K

One grade people tend to forget about is Pre-K. These kids are just starting school, and during the COVID-19 pandemic, no less.

“I get to be their first experience in school. It’s a great way to show them how learning can be fun and I think it’s a great way to see their growth throughout the year and seeing how they see new concepts and how they flow together. I also like knowing how Pre-K is just the beginning of how much they grow and that I get to be the start of their education,” Pre-K teacher Madeline Smith said. 

These teachers are the children’s first experience of a teacher. Their day consists of teaching the kids the alphabet, bringing them to PE and the playground, snack time, and nap time. 

“They love doing group work and work stations and of course the playground,” Pre-K teacher Casey Burleson said.

After asking ten kids what their favorite thing to do during the day is, a lot of them said playing, but there were a few kids who answered differently. 

Allyson P. said she likes painting raindrops. Natalie S. said she likes playing at the playground. Grayson A. said he likes to play. Tayah J. said she likes to play with her friend. Tuesday F. said she likes to take naps and play in centers. Kolt I. said he also likes to play in centers. Logan C. said he likes to draw. Landry J. said he likes to take naps and play outside. Ryker C. said he likes PE. Last but not least, Connor L. said he likes to play with blocks.
