8:15-9:30 1/2 the class (16 kids) for math and language arts centers, phonics instruction, writing, handwriting (Fridays we have choice time)
9:30 Late group arrive... Calendar, weather, pledge, attendance
9:45-10:30 Snack Recess. I HATE THIS PART too long and the late kids just got there. Next year it will be changed. recess will be 9:30-10:00 Late kids will arrive at 10:00 so they won't have snack/recess.
10:30-11:45 Story, whole class instruction, science, social studies, 2nd step, art, more math and language arts.
11:45 Late group goes to lunch- early group gets ready to go home- complete chaos
12:00-12:45 My lunch time
12:45-2:00 Repeat of what the early group did
2:00-3:15 Teacher prep and planning time.
Next year my schedule will be the same except for the arrival of the late group and the recess. I will be doing my math and literacy stations during the small groups, I think it will be more manageable. I tried centers with all 30 kids, but it was soooo loud and I just couldn't get to all the kids..
Now, hop on over to Growing Kinders and join the party.
