Daily Schedule

In order to get my blog out there, I am taking part in any of the linky parties I hear about!
Head on over to Simply 2nd Resources to check out everyone's schedule!


Below, you will see my schedule from last year. I will be trying to keep about the same schedule this year, even though I am moving up from 2nd grade to 3rd grade.

7:55 – 8:15 Arrival / Morning Work
8:15 – 9:00 Math (on days 2, 4, 6, the AIS math teacher would pull her math kids for ½ of this time, leaving us both with smaller groups to work with)
9:00 – 9:15 Spelling / Word Work
9:15 – 10:00 AIS Reading / Enrichment Block (most of my students would leave with the various AIS Reading teachers, leaving me with a group of 5 for enrichment – I loved this period!)
10:00 - 10:15 Snack 
10:15 – 11:00  ELA Centers / Small groups (students were on a rotation of going to centers with a buddy or working with me at the reading table)
11:00 – 11:30 ELA Whole Group (this is where I had to do my work with the basal, focus skill, focus strategy, etc)
11:31 – 12:11 Special (Day 1 Music, Day 2 PE, Day 3 Computers, Day 4 PE, Day 5 Art, Day 6 PE)
12:15 – 12:40 Lunch
12:40 – 1:00 Recess
1:00 – 1:10 Text Talk (this is my read-aloud; I would read a chapter book – the Clementine series was our favorite – and we would add interesting word to the text talk wall, and talk about them. These were posted all year for us to use and discuss – it really helps increase vocabulary!)
1:10 - 1:20 Penmanship / Cursive (another favorite time of the day – they felt like “big kids” learning cursive!)
1:20 – 1:45 Writing or Grammar (Monday - process wtg, Tuesday - weekly grammar skill, Wednesday - process wtg, Thursday -weekly grammar skill, Friday - journal wtg)
1:45 – 2:15 Science or Social Studies (we rotated just about every-other month teaching a science chapter or social studies unit)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. In our district, the students are required to get 45 minutes of science and 45 minutes of social studies every day. It makes it really tough to fit in a lot of math, which they also only require 45 minutes of. I'm always searching for more time! :-)
