Summary of Internship
Every Thursday I arrive at the daycare around nine o’ clock in the morning and leave at five o’ clock in the afternoon. When I walk in I have to sign in at the reception desk before entering the classroom. My morning routine is pretty consist every Thursday except, when the teacher has me either read to the kids or get them settled down at their designated tables. When my mentor is ready she calls each student individually to the carpet so they can get ready for circle time. During circle time, I mainly observe the kids while they sing songs, learn the letter of the day, and figure out the weather and other things of that nature. Once, circle time is over an activity that Ms. Allen has had planned for them is handed out. During the activity I help some of the struggling students individually. After the activity is done the either do movement or I read them a book. Movement usually consists of different activities that I or my mentor Ms. Christine does with kids like Simon says, musical chairs, red light green light, the head shoulders knees and toes exercise song, and freeze dance. When movement is over, Mrs. Christine takes the kids to the bathroom to get ready for lunch time which is at twelve o’ clock. When they come back from the bathroom lunch is handed out and while they are eating, I give the kids their cups of milk. After they are down eating the kids take one more trip to the bathroom before they go down for their nap. Once nap time is over I bounce around the other classrooms and help the teachers when they needed it.
