I usually arrive at school around 7:45ish-time to make any copies if needed and prep for the day.

For morning work, I do the monthly math packets from In the Math Lab
Our team switches for Science, and I teach States of Matter and Weathering and Erosion. One of my teamies teaches Weather, and the other teaches Health & Nutrition.
For Social Studies, we teach map skills, our state history, Explorers, Colonial America and the American Revolution.
Then, we move into the main math lesson.
We are starting our first year with Math in Focus
Usually we have about a half hour for whole group lessons, and then the rest of that time is for guided reading groups and independent work.
The series that we are supposed to use is Literacy By Design.

I'm always surprised at how quickly the day flies by!
Usually, there is some sort of meeting after school, be it PLC, staff, or something else.
Hopefully, I'm out by 4 (which I was very good at last year!), and getting ready to do it all again!
