    This year my kids will have 90 minutes for math, 90 minutes for reading, and 90 minutes for language/writing. Then we have one hour a day for social studies/science.

    Wow you have 2 preps everyday?? My kids only have 1 prep per day for 45 minutes. 1 day a week that have 2 preps but that's only because I have a grade study meeting for 1 of the preps. I wish my kids had 30 mins of PE daily- they need it! Instead they get 45 mins a week if we're even on the schedule for PE. (Not all classes are scheduled for each special, so its possible they might not have PE at all for a semester.)

    Yes! Once a week I have THREE specialist classes! I basically have two hours with my kids. That's why I'm so baffled that everyone is able to spend all this time on reading and writing and here I am trying to cram in what I can. I feel like there's never a long enough span of time to really get into anything. :(
