Our day begins with some quiet morning work and a time to check out new books from our classroom library. Children read the morning message and double-check the schedule. They are very quick to point out if I have forgotten a detail!
We gather for a morning meeting where we typically have a short activity, greet each other and go over the plans for the day.
The lovely thing about a self-contained classroom is that we can take more or less time on activities as needed, but a typical day's schedule is:
9:40 Morning work
9:50 Morning Meeting
10:05 BASE (Building-wide Academic Support and Enrichment) This includes writer's workshop, math games or activities, work with iPads, etc.)
1:21 Specialists (M: Art, T: Media, W: Music, Th: PE, F: PE)
3:15 Social Studies/Science
4:00 Clean up/Dismissal
