Schedule For the first few days

Hi all!

I have my classroom the way I want it. Parent packets printed. I felt like I was ready.

I got my specials schedule last night so I thought I would start writing in my lesson planner. which I don't want to get too much into b/c I still don't know when my technology block and Library time is.

We are getting all new social studies and health curriculum and I haven't even seen it yet (school starts next Wednesday)

I am the 4th 1st grade teacher so I don't have my guided reading books/plans (I'm told they are on order)

I do have my math teacher edition (also a new curriculum).

My mentor is out of town this week. Before she left she told me to think about easy centers. I bought puzzles, I have books for independent reading, she is letting me borrow a player for a listening center, and spelling center is pretty set. I'd like to do a book making center as well (ideas?)

We are def teaching a math lesson the first day so I can plan for that.

We have a 90 min reading block that I need to fill. I just can't wrap my head around it. Should I teach a few mini lessons (this is how we read independently, do spelling center, listening center etc) and then start the centers? I just don't know how to organize all of that. or what order to put it in. I know how it should look at the end of September but starting out is hard for me to picture right now.

Thankyou!

Would be a great way to run your reading block. Check out the book and/or the peony board on this site for ideas. It's really easy to follow (the book) and it really teaches kids to be independent. It involves stations, mini lessons, and guided reading. After the class and YOU become comfortable with the procedures of it all you can move on to the next part (next book) The Cafe.

I love this program and will stand by it for years to come.

Hope this helps.

Funny thing. I wanted to use this program. They "prefer" me to do centers. 2nd grade does the Daily 5

You'd think they would want some consistancy in education!!! hmmmm... Weird. Check out "I Can" stations then. It's more of a center feel. My friend uses that in her kindergarten class. Also, another friend uses it in 5th, so it's good for all ages. The book is called Practice with Purpose by Debbie Diller. I have some things for that program ready if you want. You might have to adjust them to fit your grade's needs, but I can send them to you if you give me your e-mail address.

just thought of something else. I have some "Take it to your seat"Centers stuff. Do you guys take the stuff they have and laminate it. Essentially tearing apart the book? Or do you make copies of the stuff and laminate that?

I think they more or less made bins or boxes that carried multiple items (games/laminated center games ets...) for each station and then it was ealily transported to where ever the kids would work on that station. I think one teacher had every station in a drawer in a rolling cart. The other teacher had them in those plastic bins (small) they had a lid. I'll e-mail you what I have. Hope it helps.

I have some of mine on shelves and some in bins. I guess I'll find out pretty quickly if that works or not!
