Here's a typical day for me:
4:20-4:50ish: Wake up. It all depends on how I'm going to wear my hair and if I have to shower in the morning. If I have to shower, it's closer to 4:20. If I just have to wet my hair to style it, it's more like 4:40. If I'm wearing my hair up, it's closer to 4:50.
5:00: Head downstairs and eat breakfast. I also usually get on the computer for a few minutes to check Facebook, e-mail, and blog stalk of course!
5:20: Head upstairs and get dressed.
5:40-6:10: Leave for work. It all depends on if I need to get there early. Tuesday I will definitely be getting in as early as possible because I realized on my way home from work yesterday that I forgot to bring home a lot of things I need for my lesson plans. Ugh!
6:10-6:40: Arrive at work. I like to get in early and TCB before my kiddos come.
7:10: Kids are released from the cafeteria. I meet them at the door and they come in & unpack. The kids eat breakfast in the classroom and they have morning work to complete. Last week I started PASS (our state test) review for our morning work.
7:30: Morning news comes on.
7:45: Review morning work. Breakfast should be thrown away by now. After morning work is reviewed, we have our morning meeting.
8:00-8:40: Social Studies. We incorporate a literacy component, such as writing or word work.
8:40: Get ready and leave for special area
8:45-9:25: My break! The kiddos are at special area.
9:30-11:00: Voyager Rotations. Each group has a 30 minute rotation at three stations: Voyager Reading (me), VMath (associate teacher), & Ticket to Read or VMath Online (computer)
11:00-11:30: Guided Reading (one group with me, the other with the associate teacher)
11:35-11:55: Lunch (this usually lasts until at least 12 though because of long lines).
12:00-12:20: Recess (again, this is usually backed up because of lunch)
12:25-1:05: Science (on Fridays we go to the Garden Classroom during this time until 1:30).
2:15-2:20: Pack up. Play Find It Fix It & have our daily raffle drawings. Winners of both get to go to the prize box.
2:20: Dismissal. I walk my kids. I drop the after school kids off at the cafeteria and drop off my bus riders at the bus loop. Then, I wait with my car rider (who used to go to after school and I totally wish he would so I'd be done sooner :)
3:00-3:45: Leave. Sometimes I leave before 3, sometimes it's closer to 4. It really just all depends on how messy my work area is!
Just for fun...here's what my afternoons look like:
When I get home, I work out if I'm going to (which I actually did last week...whoop whoop!) Of course, I blog stalk and get on the computer.
Around 5:30ish, I'll get dinner started so we can eat between 6 and 6:30.
Then, I work on the computer or watch T.V. until I go to bed, which is usually pretty early. I try to get in bed between 8 and 9, although I have definitely been asleep before 8 before!
Of course, I hang out with my husband and the Giz when I get home, but figured that went without saying!
Oh yeah, and I have class this semester on Tuesdays from 4:15-6:45 so I'll also be doing that.
I hope you head over and link up! I love seeing what other people's days look like!
