Hi Sara. So glad you are feeling so much better! Your Director is very thoughtful of your safety. You certainly do not want to be mobbed by jumping children. Do you think they might hug you? Shuffling papers has its hazards too -- paper cuts. If you make a habit of standing (stacks of) papers on edge and rapping them to straighten them up, you are bound to get paper cuts within paper cuts.
Wow, how things have changed! When I was a little child, there was School, and there was Kindergarten for the school year prior to First Grade, and relatively few went to Kindergarten.
Here are some ideas for non-hazardous activities__
Art activities -- Coloring with crayons. Weaving pre-cut strips of colored construction paper. Coloring with colored chalk on a sidewalk or other paved area outside the classroom.
Learning to count. Learning to count change.
Learning to read (round) clocks to tell time. Learning how much of their time (in hours) is spent at pre-school.
Learning names of calendar days and calendar months. Learning to count days, weeks, months on a calendar. Learning that the passage of calendar time relates to repeating Seasons, holidays, birthdays, back-to-school time. Fill out a calendar with their birthdays to be indicated by them.
You could read stories to small groups. Choose thin-ish, lightweight books with large pages. After reading a pair of pages to them, you turn the book around to show them the accompanying illustrations.
Much content from Highlights magazine for children would be good for times of individual attention with the youngest ones.
My latest (Stage IVB) diagnosis is almost certainly of another distant primary type. To the best of my information and belief, I am still apparently what we call NED as to breast cancer, doubtless thanks to Letrozole.
