Another thought...

I love the ideas you got so far. Here is another thought I've see done. You each teach your own math and ELA. You all teach science/social studies, too, but you are each assigned a unit or chapter. You divide the year into 5 segments. During each segment, the kids rotate to teachers for science/social studies. Each teacher teaches that unit. By the end of the year, the students would have had all teachers and all units. As a teacher, you save time because you are only planning fewer units and know that unit really well, instead of having to plan all of the units. I've seen this done for science and social studies, though I'm hesitant in social studies due to sequence of events. If your social studies is not dependent on sequence of events (say you are doing geography vs. American history), it should be good, but I'm hesitant doing it with social studies because of the order of things. I don't see any issue with science, though.
