Thursdays & WIW

I'm linking up with

Falling into First
for her schedule linky.

Today's was a little wonky, because we had MAP testing, so I'll put what we usually do in parenthesis. :)

7:45-8:15 PLC Meeting

8:20-8:45 Students Arriving- Most students are in the building by 8:45 (since they're supposed to be at school by 8:30...) They do morning work at this time, catch up on unfinished work or read.

8:45-9 Morning Meeting (unless there is band or chorus...which is between 2-3 days a week....grrrr)

8:50-9:50 MAP Testing-today

(9-9:45 Social Studies/Science-usually! It switches off. At the start of each quarter, we switch to science and have 20 lessons. The rest of the time we do Social Studies)

9:45-10:50 Math
      9:45-10 Snack/Calendar. I use the SMART Board for my calendar, and have the kids interact with me while they have snack.
      10-10:50 Lesson Introduction then move into Guided Math groups. There are 3 'stations'. Me, Independent work, and a practice center.

10:50-11:40 Specials - Today: Gym!

11:40-12:15 Guidance Counselor lessons (usually-a catch up time, or spelling practice. I have two friends that leave at this time for extra support, so I don't want to introduce anything new so they miss out)

12:15-1 Lunch/Recess

1-1:30 Whole Group Literacy Lesson
       We cover everything in here! Phonics, Grammar, Writing, Fluency Practice, Strategies Introduction, etc. I usually get about 4 things in a day-covering all the highlights. Some days are more focused on one thing than others.

1:30-2:45 Small Groups/Centers
      Students break into either center work or go to their guided reading groups (I have 6 kids leave at 1:30 to three different teachers....and 2 more leave at 2!)
     I pull my groups...working with some friends that struggle with their independent work before they leave, and then working with my two groups.

2:45-2:55 Clean up and Dissmissal

And everyone's gone by 3!

Then after school today I had a Report Card Commitee Meeting until 5...but that's not every week. :)

Today's outfit

Sweater: Kohls
Tank: Target

I'm also linking up with Mix and Match Fashion's What I Wore to Work linky.
