6:17 - My first alarm goes off (I don't like even numbers, so it's always set for odd!). I then snooze one more time, wake up, and check the news, email, facebook, weather, etc. on my phone while still cozy in my bed and snuggling with the Mr.
6:35 - My dog has had enough of me snooping on my phone and wants to go outside. Then I head up to shower, get ready, and head off for my 30 minute commute. Lately, I've been alternating between the radio and books on CD.
7:40 - Arrive at school, put my lunch in the fridge, turn on my computer, and then start grading paper. My computer takes FOREVER to load, so I make sure I get other things done during this time.
8:50 - The kids start coming, get unpacked, and start on their morning work. We have a really late start, but it allows for good work time before school.
9:10 - Math groups! I love math, and this is one of my favorite parts of the day!
10:10 - Word Work and Phonics - after coming from 3rd grade, I have a new-found excitement for phonics. I am very Type A, and our Intensive Phonics program allows me to bring that out every day!
10:45 - Guided Reading - My kids really like changing classrooms and moving around a bit during this time.
11:30 - Lunch/Recess (WOOHOO..first break of the day if I don't have recess duty!)
12:35 - RTI - I have the enrichment group and really enjoy the projects we get to do during this time. We are currently designing sails to put on a small raft (think McD's pancake foam tray) that will go across a fishing line track. Very fun!
1:05 - Writer's Workshop - I learn so much conferencing with these kids! They help me plan my future mini lessons and don't even realize it.
1:55 - Reader's Workshop - By far my kids' favorite part of the day! This year they just love to read. I think they would be okay without any mini-lessons and just straight up reading time every day.
2:40 - Pack Up, fill in assignment notebooks, and I start thinking about my prep time...finally!
2:50 - Specials
3:30 - Pick up kids, grab backpacks, and head to the buses!
3:40 - Whew! Now to reenergize for tomorrow, or think about what's for dinner. Wah wah..
