    Does anyone else struggle to fit everything in in a day? (first grade) Between Daily 5, Everyday Math, Handwriting, Read Aloud, Snack, Morning Meeting, Calendar Time Lunch and Receses, and Word Wall every few days that is pretty much all we are getting to in a day. I feel horrible! What about Writing? We need to fit in 2 more sessions of Daily 5. Science, what's that? We are new to implementing Everyday Math and I love it, but it is killing me. I don't think my students are going to know how to read next year. What are some tricks you use to squeeze more time out of the day? I am dying here!

    It can seem a bit crazy, can't it? For Daily 5 I only do read to self and work on writing. I try to integrate as much science and social studies as I can into writing time and the read alouds we do.

    Agree...are there some things you can do to hit a couple areas? I think when I taught we switched science and Soc Studies every other day.

    I have no idea. My grade level switches science and social studies - alternating units. That helps a bit, but it is still hard to fit it all in!
