On day one of this school year, I had a schedule in place. Our schedule today looks TOTALLY different and is so much more functional that those first few weeks when we were still getting to know each other. My students work hard ALL. DAY. LONG. We just intersperse short, frequent breaks to keep us motivated!
To give you all some ideas about what we do in my elementary AU combo class (grades K-3), I will be doing a rundown of our daily schedule & what we do during each time – even pick-up, lunch, recess, etc. because you all know how much teaching we still have to do during these times!
Here’s what I have planned:
Letter of the Week/Literacy
Work Rotations: Teacher Time, Fluency, Computer, Independent Workboxes
Dismissal Circle Time
Daily Parent Communication
PHEEEW — I have a lot to do. I love making myself checklists!
If you look over this list and want to hear about something not listed, please send me a message here and I’ll add it in to the series. My first post will be tomorrow — MORNING ROUTINES! YAY!

Easy prep and easy clean up turkey craft we will be doing tomorrow at school. Yes, I have to work Monday and Tuesday. Anyone else? I had Rhett use @kwikstixpaint for the brown and then we glued the other pieces right away since the paint dries magically fast. Rainbow strips to make the feathers to work on letter recognition in his name! 🌈 ... See MoreSee Less
