This is my day!
For Morning Work, I use:
We also do work in our Handwriting Book.
At 9, we start our day. We flip flop between Science and Social Studies.
Right now, we are working on Explorers in Social Studies.
From last year-I have 5 crews this year!
I've introduced our Crew Project-and the kids are really excited!
We switch for Science, so my kids will be learning about weather while I teach Weathering and Erosion, States of Matter to another class.
Around 9:45, we start Math!
I always start out with my calendar:
Then we move onto the lesson in our books:
Then I sent the kids to specials to run around like a crazy person setting things up for the afternoon :)
After they come back, we work on Mentor Sentences and Spelling.
Following Mentor Sentence fun (which they and I LOVE!), I send them off for lunch and recess!
We don't have lunch duty, and the amount of time we spend at recess duty varies from day to day. Sometimes I only have a 20 minute lunch, sometimes a 30 minute, and sometimes the full 40!
When Lunch/Recess is done, our entire afternoon is spent on Literacy.
We do about a half hour of Whole Group Instruction, before doing three rotations of Small Groups.
I like to pull out the picture books whenever possible, and always use my fun organizers!
T is reading Percy Jackson
R is reading a nonfiction Dolphin book and
Q is reading mystery book.
The other students are working on their Literacy Centers
At 2:45 the pick-ups/walkers get ready, and they're dismissed at 2:50.
A very busy day that flies by!
