I needed help with a blocking schedule. I have been teaching for 7 years and each year I have taught something different. Last year I was teaching 7th and 8th grade reading...this year I only have 7th graders but I have them for writing and grammar. We are going to a blocking schedule (90 mins) and I have no idea how I want to piece everything together. I have a reading and writing book, which my students will be doing novels as well, but I am looking for someone that can share their day to day routine. For example, do you do DOL when they come in, then have them write in their journals, then do a reading assignment...???? I am just so confused on what I actually want to do in the classroom. Could anyone give me any ideas on what you do in your language arts class??? Thanks!!!!
