Simply 2nd Resources is having a daily schedule linky party and I'm all for a good party! This is my first EVER linky party, and I am a party girl at heart, so I am super excited! My daily schedule is pretty consistent, unless it's Wednesday. On Wednesday we have an "early release" day and we lovingly refer to it as "Wacky Wednesday" (and believe me when I say it can get all kinds of wacky!). This is my schedule from last year and I am hoping to stick to it this year, but we have not officially received our specials and lunch times yet, so it's all a work in progress (as it usually is ).
8:25-8:55- Un-pack/prepare for the day/free read (I do Tier 2 & 3 of RTI at this time)
8:55-9:10- Morning Meeting/Shared Writing (Morning Message)
9:10-10:30- Reading Workshop (shared reading, stations, small group, conferences)
10:30-10:50- Word Study (Making words, word sorts, word games)
10:50-11:30- Specials 1 (PE time)
11:35-12:15- Writing Workshop
12:20-12:45- Lunch (we eat with our students since we have 2 planning times-one is for lunch)
12:50-1:30- Math Workshop (small group, math stations)
1:30-2:10- Specials 2 (art, music, computers, media, math lab)
2:10-2:30- Math Wrap-up (we do our assignment at one time so I can be available to help everyone)
2:30-3:00- Centers (library, math games, art, computer,science, words) while I work with RTI students
You are probably thinking "where is the science and social studies?" No worries my friends, I have found that in a time of so much to do with so little time creativity is the key to everything. Here is my Wednesday schedule:
8:25-8:55 Un-pack/prepare for the day/free read (I do Tier 2 & 3 of RTI at this time)
8:55-9:15- Morning Meeting/Shared Writing (Morning Message)
9:15-10:15- Book Buddies
10:45-12:15- Science/Social Studies time
12:45-1:05- Science/Social Studies Wrap-up
1:05- 1:20- Team Building/Class Building Activity
There are many days I wish we could go to one special just so I could have more time in the classroom, there never seems to be enough time. This schedule worked fairly well for us this year so hopefully it will stay the same next year-it's grown on me.
Thanks for letting me be part of the party-it was tons of fun and I can't wait for the next one!!
