Hi, everyone! This is my first year teaching, and after many attempts, I still cannot manage to work a good schedule for my classroom. This year, I’ve completely neglected science/social studies/theme activities because I don’t have a specific time set aside for it. It’s really been tragic! The only time I’ve been able to do anything with this subject area is to take away developmental centers or math, which I’ve done on occasion....however, math is too important to skip and I think developmental centers are just as important for kinders. I’ve finally worked my schedule to include math, science/social studies, and developmental centers in the afternoon next year, and in my opinion, it’s perfect. That leaves me with the morning portion of our day and I just don’t know how to fit everything in! I’ve been wracking my brain ALL YEAR LONG! I have roughly two hours (8:00-10:00 am) in the morning for: Morning Meeting Short oral phonics lesson Shared Reading Interactive Writing Reader’s Workshop/Guided Reading/Daily 5 (I do kind of a hybrid language arts block) Writer’s Workshop/Journal Writing/Handwriting There just seems no way to get ALL this done in two hours. How in the world can I juggle all these things? Even if I do the first four things in 10-15 mins each, I still only have about an hour to do the last two things....and in my opinion, EACH of them should have their own hour...or at least 45 mins. Maybe the answer is to not do each thing EVERYDAY? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!
