Daily Schedule

This week has been a little cray-cray!  
Anybody else with me?
We had MAP testing and benchmark testing squished into 3 days!
We had a professional development today and a workday tomorrow.
I'm here to share my daily schedule with you by linking up to Amelia's fun party!
 I love seeing how other teachers plan out their days!  Here's a peek a typical day in room 211.
7:10-8:00 Arrival, Breakfast, Morning Routine
We have breakfast in the classroom.  While they are eating, they are usually finishing up the drawings in their SS/Science notebooks from the day before.  I also have one group a day exchange their books from their book boxes.
8:00-9:30 Math (Group 1)
I have my teaching partner's class during this time.  I do a whole group lesson till about 8:30, then we spend the next hour doing math rotations.  I have 4 groups that rotate every 15 minutes!  This is one of my favorite times of the day.
9:30-10:20 Special Area
Library, Art, Music, Computer, PE 
Our school is busting at the seams, so art and music is actually held in our classroom.  Wednesdays we have a grade level meeting and Thursdays are our TCT (Teacher Coach/Teacher) meeting where we meet with our instructional coaches, principal, and assistant principal.
10:20-11:00 SS/Science (Group 1)
We do 4 weeks of SS and then 4 weeks of Science.  I find it makes more sense to teach these subjects in units.
11:00-11:40 SS/Science (Group 2)
We do the same thing as above, but now with my homeroom class.
11:45-12:15 Lunch/Restroom
We eat lunch with our students and on the way back to class take a restroom break.
12:15-1:00 Math (Group 2)
I typically can get through the whole group and 1-2 rotations during this time.
1:00-1:20 Recess
My teaching partner and I take our kids to the playground and chit-chat while the kiddos play!
1:20-2:00 Math (Group 2)
We have a fresh fruits and vegetables program at our school, so 3 times a week we get a snack! We eat the snacks after recess while we finish up our rotations.
2:00-2:20 End of Day
This is a busy time of day!  We fill out our behavior calendar, reflect on our behavior goals, and I sign their agendas.  Of course we pack up, clean up, collect pencils, etc.
2:30 Dismissal
My grade level rotates between the 4 different dismissal duties (car, bus, walkers, after-school care).

So that's a normal day...which we totally didn't have this week!  Can't wait to get back to normal!!  Go check out some other daily schedules at Where the Wild Things Learn.


  1. Such a great idea to provide breakfast for your students! The children are so much more productive when they are properly fed.

  2. Oh my gosh, do you get any time away from your classroom during the day? It seems like your students are always with you.


  3. Wow! You have such an interesting day and I really enjoyed reading about it! :) You definitely utilize every minute to it's fullest. I'm sure your kiddos love you! I can't believe you guys eat lunch with the kiddos. I cherish that time with my teachy friends without our kiddos. I love that you have a fresh fruit and veggie program. That's amazing!

    Thanks for linking up :)
