Hi All...I was just asked to be a long term Kindergarten Sub. in a charter school starting Monday!! I'm very excited, but also a little nervous. Can anyone offer words of wisdom to help me on my new venture? (as far as what I can expect and what I should be doing). I have subbed a few times this year, but not too often! Let me know any advice you can give!

kindergardeners need an equal balance of love and structure. Too much of either one = chaos!

1st graders with a lot more crayons. Enjoy them. This is what humans are before they turn into snots (this is from a parent and urban teacher)

Hi lovereading86, I am one as well! The kindergarten teacher recently went on maternity leave and I was asked to take over. I was a third grade teacher last year, and a assistant special education teacher for the beginning of this year, so I had much experience (or so I thought). I learned that Kindergarten is very different than any other grade. One thing I found was that children this age need to be spoken to very slowly. I was losing their attention during lessons, because I was speaking to them at the same rate I would speak to adults. Way too fast!! Keep it simple and slow. Sometimes the kids won't listen and that, but try your hardest not to lose your mind! I try to incorporate as much center time and play time as possible. The kids will get ansy!! Treat your first week of teaching as their first week of school. Try to learn everyone's name and get to know each individual child. Also, try to send out a letter to the parents the 1st week you'll be with the kindergarten students. I attached my letter. Also, try to make your classroom your own. I went in on 7:30ish on my first day (my school starts at 9:00) and rearranged the whole room! Make sure you know exactly what the teacher expects you to teach them, but feel free to give all and any lesson plans your own twist!
