    Second grade teachers: What would you do if this were your schedule:

    8:30-9:20 Class time
    9:20-9:55 Specials
    9:55-11:05 Class time
    11:05-11:40 Lunch
    11:40-2:30 Class time
    2:30 Dismiss

    As you can see our schedule has a very short morning and long afternoon. These are the different components I need to add:

    Morning meeting
    Word Work and Word Wall
    Reading Workshop
    Literacy Centers
    Writing Workshop
    Read Aloud
    Calendar/Math
    Science/Social Studies

    How would you arrange it if this were your schedule?

    Wow that is stuff. Normally I would say the Literacy block (reading) and Writing should be in the morning but you do not look like you enough time. How long is your reading block supposed to be? I have a mandatory 90 minutes. We have learned for K-2 that this should be in the morning.
    Here is my recommendation not knowing all the time constraints:

    8:30-9:20 Morning meeting/Math/Calendar

    9:55-11:05 Read Aloud,Reading Workshop,Literacy Centers

    11:40-2:30 Word Work and Word Wall, Writing Workshop,Science/Social Studies

    What about your recess time? If you get to pick your own I would break up your afternoon with that.

    I teach first, but I'll give it a shot. I am guessing you don't do recess since you have a short day.
    8:30 Morning Meeting
    8:50 Word Work
    9:20 Specials
    9:55 Calendar and Math
    11:05 Lunch
    11:40 Read Aloud
    12:00 Science/S.S. (although I integrate into other subjects and don't teach math on Fridays so I can do science/social studies then--so that might be an option)
    12:30 Reading Workshop w/ centers
    1:45 Writing Workshop
    2:30 Dismiss
    ??? Would this work?
