    This year we are adding Spanish everyday for high students only. This is based on test scores.:blush:

    I'm at new school and so far this is what I know for sure I have

    Music Twice a week
    Art once a week
    PE once a week
    Computers 2x a week (but half @ a time but potential for the aide to work with them so I have plan time unsure on if I like this).

    I know there are kids who see the resource teacher but I haven't gotten those details yet.

    I also know that right now I do not have a plan period on Wednesdays and Thursdays I am not looking forward to this and hope something can be worked out.

    We alternate computer/music every other day (so twice a week each)
    PE everyday
    They are all at the same time, 30 minutes each for a total of 1 hour a day.

    The kids have library lessons every other week for 30 minutes and we take them on the alternate week to exchange books.

    During computer time twice a month they have spanish lessons on the computer (not too sure of the details of this.

    I am envious of all of your specials.

    Each week, we have for 30 minutes:
    2 music
    2 P.E.
    1 computer
    1 library

    I really wish (feel the students need) P.E. daily, and also would love to have art at least once a week. It's wonderful that the kids are doing a foreign language so often in the younger grades. That's the time to learn it!

    Wow...you guys have a lot more than we do!

    PE: 1x week (45 minutes)
    Music: 1x week (45 minutes)
    Art: 1x week (45 minutes)
    Computer: 1x week (45 minutes)
    Library: 1x week (30 minutes)

    This allows all teachers to have a planning period during this time. It is common time for each grade level.

    40 minutes each of these:
    PE 2 X per week
    World Language (Spanish)
    Art
    Music

    Library (technically not a 'free' period for the teacher but we don't have to teach the lesson, the librarian does...we can plan/collaborate with her- this is the first year for us not having library as a prep)
    Computer Lab (not a pull-out, classroom teachers teach this one)

    We have the following once a week for 40 minutes:

    PE
    Music
    Art
    Alliied Arts (a bonus pe, music, or art - it changes quarterly)
    Classroom guidance for 6 35 minute blocks.

    We don't have library unless we take our class in to check out books. Last year 2-6 had a library class for a duration similar to our classroom guidance deal, for some reason it wasn't offered to K and 1. (and it wasn't a time issue, she had plenty of time to fit us in)
