Classroom Schedule!


Today I am linking up with Teacher by the beach to talk all about our daily schedule!


I think as a new teacher, your daily schedule is one of the hardest things to figure out. It took a lot of trial and error to finally master the best schedule for me and my students. Keep in mind that your schedule might need to be adjusted each year depending on the school you work at and the specials that you might have. I now have a general schedule that works really well for me and I can make little tweaks wherever they are needed.




   

   Here you can see the schedule that I used last year. This schedule worked out really well! For the most part, I have used this same schedule for the last few years. The only thing that has adjusted a little is our lunch time and specials. I try to keep all of the core subjects around the same times each year. I think that the morning is a great time to do ELA. The students are refreshed in the morning and they are not too tired. I like to do Math in the afternoon because there are lots of hands on games that we use and it energizes the students when they are tired after lunch.

   I love using a visual schedule for the students each day. I use these cards on our whiteboard at the front of the classroom. They work great to help keep our day on track. I also have the kids help mark off what subjects we have already done and what still needs to be done. This is also a great way to help your students who need structure. Having your schedule posted can help your students know what is happening throughout the day.

   What does your schedule look like? Do you post it somewhere in your classroom? Let me know in the comments.
