“The average classroom teacher will make more than 1,500 educational decisions every school day. In an average 6-hour school day, that's more than 4 decisions every minute.” -Teacher Vision
If you want to be the master of your day, divide it up into smaller bite-sized pieces. Child care professionals and educators have a tendency to plan things weeks in advance and consider larger blocks of time for accomplishing a laundry list of goals. This is simply too much to handle. Dividing your time into smaller chunks is much more effective and realistic.
Consider this example:
When we start to consider the parts of this day as 5 chunks, suddenly things seem simpler. You only need to think about the immediate events in the current chunk, not the entire day as a whole. Writing down the pieces of the day helps you as well so that you don’t allow your mind to wander about Ashante’s habit of screaming during nap time or Waldo’s preference for running to his Dad instead of sitting at circle time. Educators have a tendency to plan ahead and try to smooth out any wrinkles and their minds are always working. This can be a positive attribute but it can quickly take hold and become a time thief as well.
