Hi! Needing some advice/help here with my "schedule." All 3 5th grade teachers at my campus are new, so we are all starting from scratch. For me, I have gone through and decided on some elements I know I want to do, such as a monthly Discovery Quest/speech, many literature experiences (book discussions, for example, book reports), a writing workshop, ect. But I still have to fit in the "biggies:" science, math, and reading for state testing. I need some example schedules to look at so I can get an idea of how other teachers fit in things like reading, grammar activities, ect. If your students work on writing projects, for example, when and how often do they do this? Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!! oh, one more thing! How do you start your mornings? Thanks!
