Took the 3 weeks in K. Glad I did!

I just got done with a 3 week sub job in Kindergarten. I enjoyed the experience mainly because the regular teacher had a well-thought out schedule which required very little planning from me and the school paid me $160/day (instead of the usual $100) because it was considered a long-term sub job. Today I was a 6th grade para which included lunchroom recess, outside recess and inside recess in a gym and I far preferred the K classroom. Ugh.

Pros: Afternoon work was light with an hour of Playtime, storytime, snacktime, recess, gym. The only planning I had to do was with the Math and Reading small group rotations. Also, great co-workers and great pay.
Cons: Several kids were confirmed to have influenza A so lots of coughing and sneezing throughout the 3 weeks and I ended up getting sick myself toward the very end. Also some little boys needed lots of reminders in following directions so much patience was required.

I would do it again.
