Looking for some ideas and advice : our school day has been extended and our teaching periods have been made a little shorter (45 mins). I teach 4th and 5th grade ELA and SS. The amount of periods I teach per day varies.
2 days I teach 6 periods of 45 minutes (4th and 5th grade classes),
1 day I teach 5 periods,
1 day I teach 4 periods and
1 day I teach 3 periods.

I teach 12 periods a week for 5th grade and 12 periods for 4th grade. (I hope that's not too confusing!!)
I have to organize which periods I'm going to use for SS and which for ELA (although I am hoping to integrate SS and Science - with the Science teacher's help, during ELA).

I also want to devote certain periods to writing, grammar and reading rotations.
How much time would you give a week for Writing and Grammar, or would you integrate it?

Thanks so much!

This is what my schedule looks like!

I am just curious? Do you have each group for 2 periods a week? Are those two periods consecutive on those two longer days?

I am definitely aiming on doing that! Thanks.

And by "Wow" do you mean, wow it's great, or wow it's crazy? Lol

I teach 4th grade ELA and SS...and all I can say is WOW, what a schedule!!! I totally agree with Linda! Definitely focus more on the ELA and incorporate the SS in informational text.

Great advice Linda! Thanks. Yes, all periods are 45 minutes each. I tried to actually upload a picture of my schedule but I couldn't. We use AERO standards, which are for international schools, but I'm sure I can still integrate.

First of all, WOW what a schedule

Are the periods 45 min each?

I would just make sure to be heavy on ELA and less time on s.s. And as you mentioned , when you can, integrate. When we do an informational skills unit I just use mostly s.s. topics. Same with writing, I try to use topics related to our s.s. standards. So for example when studying Ohio Indians, students complete an Indian research report of some kind.
