It all depends on what class setting you are put in. I have been put with preschoolers and another time I was put with a couple children who had severe disabilities in the early elementary range. Expect some struggles some days, be patient, and be sure to have fun too. Some days you may do a lot, but other days you may be more relaxing and letting kids play or chill out all day. Be sure to pay attention too, because you never know what the kids are going to do sometimes. It was very eye-opening to see, but also very fun to interact with all the children.
