I saw a post to this linky party from Taming My Flock of Firsties and thought it sounded like a fun first linky party to join up with. Katy, from Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher is hosing this linky party on what a "typical" day in the life of a teacher looks like.
Here was my Friday, yesterday:
5:40 Husband has been up for about an hour and comes back to the room to say his good-byes for the day.
6:30 alarm goes off, but I pushed snooze three times until 7:00
7:00 kids alarm has gone off and my 5 year old comes into my room and climbs in the bed
My 7 year old and 5 year old get ready, pretty much on their own for the day. (They are super kids!) 7 year old gets a bottle for the 1 year old and gets him out of bed while I shower and get ready. (Of course all of this would go smoother if I actually got up at 6:30)
7:45 Hurry everyone to the car
7:55 Arrive at the sitters and drop off the 5 year old and 1 year old for the day. I take the sitter's son to school. Realize that I forgot the baby's antibiotic for his current ear infection and run home to get it.
8:20 Arrive back at sitter's to give baby medication.
8:30 Arrive at school and stay in the car to finish my yogurt breakfast while the 7 year old heads into the building.
8:35 Get to my classroom and get "ready" for the day.
8:55 Students come into the classroom and we start our day.
9:00-9:30 Shared Reading (We took our spelling Tests)
9:30-10:00 Writing (Students worked on their small moments writing and adding adjectives)
10:00 - Lock Down Drill
10:15 -11:20 Guided Reading (Usually starts at 10:00)
11:20 Class did a making words activity from the letters in tamale
11:35 Take class to Lunch / Eat my lunch
12:10 Pick up class from lunch
12:15-12:45 Math assessment on place value unit we just finished
12:45-1:45 Math centers while I do the interview portion of the math assessment
1:45-2:15 Friday Fun (choice time as a reward for weekly behavior)
2:15 - 2:45 Recess (usually just until 2:30, but it was a beautiful afternoon and the teachers were loving it as much as the students.
2:45 Teacher Read, I read
3:10 Clean up
3:15 Dismissal Bell Rings
I Corrected spelling tests and checked in homework then gathered things to bring home.
3:45 Met with parents for a parent conference they rescheduled from last week.
4:00 left school with 7 year old to pick up kids from childcare. Went to the bank and then to pick up a pizza.
5:00 Arrived home with dinner and the kids.
