We call it essential area classes

Clip to ScrapBook #4

Ours include music, art and PE. Every student goes daily for 45 minutes. The classes are taught by other teachers. This gives the homeroom teacher a conference period for planning, grading as well as parent conferences.

Each year we receive a different time for these classes in our schedule. Most of the time all teachers for that grade level have the same essential area time. That way teachers who all teach the same grade level can meet to take care of planning and other team issues. Unfortunately this year three of have 9:30 to 10:15 and two of have 12:15 to 1:00, so all planning has to be done after school. The kids just rotate the three classes daily, art, music and PE.
