A Day in My Shoes
I love a new pair of shoes, or two, or three... That is why I am linking up with Ruby Red Slippers on International Blog Hopping Day!
A typical school day:
5:25 Alarm goes off - hit snooze
5:35 Alarm goes off again - want to hit snooze, but I drag myself out of bed
5:35 - 6:40 Shower, get dressed, do hair & makeup
6:40 Eat breakfast (I keep it simple: OJ, coffee & Cinnamon Toast Crunch w/o milk)
7:10 Wonder where the time went & leave for school
7:14 Arrive at school (I live really close!)
7:14 - 7:35 Get things ready for the day: Turn on lamps, computer, put out morning papers, etc.
7:35 Greet students in hallway
7:35 - 7:50 Once everyone is in the classroom we do some sort of morning work, take attendance, lunch count and wait for morning announcements
750 - 7:55 Announcements
7:55 - 8:10 Opening story - I begin the day by reading a picture book
8:10 - 8:30 Morning Meeting: Calendar Math and Morning Message (We do some stretches and sing a song or two)
8:30 - 9:00 Special (Computer Lab, PE, Music, Library, or Art)
9:00 - 9:10 Misc. activities
9:10 - 9:35 Recess (Just Kindergarten in AM!)
9:35 - 9:45 Break (Restroom & snack)
9:45 - 11:15 Literacy Block
11:15 - 11:45 Lunch
11:45 - 11:55 Quiet Time (this past year's kinders loved to color and read books!)
11:55 - 12:20 Writing
12:20 - 12:50 Special (Computer Lab, PE, Music, Library, or Art)
12:50 - 1:30 Math
1:30 - 1:55 Recess (with first grade)
1:55 - 2:20 Developmental Centers
2:20 - 2:30 Story
2:30 - 2:40 Quick review of letters, sight words, numbers, and then get ready to go home
2:40 - 3:10 Talk with my teacher friends, grade level meeting, etc.
4:00 - 4:30 Finally leave school!
4:30 If I go straight home (instead of visiting my mom, babysitting my granddaughter, going to the store, etc.) I put on something comfy - quite often my pj's*!
4:30 - 10:00 The usual evening activities: dinner, clean up, papers, reading, Pinterest, falling asleep on the couch in front of the TV with my little dog *Thursday is date night with my husband - I don't put my pj's on at 4:30!
