Here's the scoop....I am an American teacher hired by a school in Oman to teach kindergarten and then loaned to a school that uses the IPC curriculum and put in EY. I have never taught children this young (in America, they would be in daycare, not school) and am really struggling. I cannot get my head around it. It is nothing like I have been exposed to in the States. I am suppose to produce plans for the unit Animals to begin in mid-November. This is so not my cup of tea! The other teachers in the school are British and use to the system and use acronyms I have never heard of, terminology used in a way that is foreign to me, and are drowning in their own planning (long term, midterm, short term??). Does anyone out there have IPC Animals plans they would be willing to share? If so, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so desperate that I am considering just going home and forgetting about this head spinning task. And thank you to all who are reading this and feeling my pain.
