I moved from one school to another this year. My old school had 140 minutes for reading, my new one has just 75 I'm used to 60 min whole group, 60 minutes centers/small group, and 20 mins independent reading. How can I fit in whole group, spelling, grammar, and small groups into 45 minutes?? Hmmm...I'm thinking I should skip grammar altogether and incorporate that into my DOL that I do for morning work? I could also incorporate grammar into my writing block somehow. My questions: I will do whole group each day, but for how long? Should I do centers 2-3 days a week? How often should I do small group? (Probably the 2-3 days I do centers?) This is for 3rd grade.
