So I’m a little late on this one (Better late than never?!) but I’m sharing my daily schedule. This is the schedule I used this school year. I am working on a much better one for next year incorporating Daily 5! Yeah!
7:45 – 8:30: Calendar Math on SmartBoard, Morning Work (Drops in the Bucket)
8:30 – 10:30: Reading Block (Phonics/Spelling, Comprehension, Fluency, HeidiSongs, Literacy Work Stations)
10:30 10:55: Lunch (I HATE having the first lunch! Shouldn’t Kindergarten eat before 1st grade???)
10:55 – 11:30: Recess ( We aren’t supposed to have “recess” for that long. )
11:30 – 12:30: Specials
12:30 – 1:00: Writing
1:00 – 2:00: Math
2:00 – 2:30: Math Workstations or Theme (Science/Social Studies)
2:30: Clean up room, prepare for dismissal
2:45: First bell rings to dismiss students
Netx year I’m switching from doing Debbie Diller Literacy Work Stations to Daily 5. I love Debbie Diller, but I think Daily 5 will be great for my students. I’m still going to do Diller’s Math Workstations though. I’m pretty much told to focus my day on reading, writing, and math and not to worry about Science and Social Studies. It’s sad really. I wish I had more time in the day most days.
