Want To Help Me Plan My Day?

Hey Guys!  I hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start. 

I have been given the set times to my schedule. I have to finish my schedule to include when I am going to teach each subject.  Do you want to help write my schedule?  If you do please keep reading....

I am a second grade classroom.  Here are my times that are set by my administration:
  • 7:45-8:15 Writing Portfolio
  • 9:15-9:45  Daily Specials (Computer, Library, Art, Music)
  • 10:55-11:20  Lunch
  • 12:45-1:30  Physical Education
I have to include the following in my daily schedule:
  • Math--90 minutes (includes intervention)
  • Reading 
    • 45 minutes whole group (include grammar, spelling, phonics)
    • 60 minutes small group instruction
    • 20 minutes intervention
    • 25 minutes writing
  • Content (Science and Social Studies)--45 minutes

  I teach until 2:45 pm. At my school we teach science for 4 1/2 weeks and social studies for 4 1/2 weeks.  I am going to be open to all ideas.  Please comment below or email me.  I would LOVE to know your thoughts.  What do you think would work best?


  1. In my 2nd Grade Class I learned that my kids were the sharpest for Math in the mornings! I don't know how that would fit in but I started doing Math in the afternoons and I ended up ending the year with it in the mornings!
