reading block/language arts block?

I was reading that the reading block should be 90 min., and language arts block 60 minutes for third grade.

How long is your reading block and language arts block? How do you break down your blocks and how much time do you assign to each thing?

ex: language arts would include grammar, spelling, and/or writing. TIA!

I have 95 minutes for reading, grammar, and spelling first thing in the morning. Spelling (Word Work) is about 15-20 minutes of this block. Interactive grammar is the last 10 minutes.

My Writer's Workshop block is an hour.

Just out of curiosity...where did you read this?

Our principal asks us to look at the master schedule and choose a 60 minute block that he can put as uninterrupted on the master schedule. The 60 minutes is for mini lesson and meet with guided reading groups. I usually like to give myself 90 minutes to also allow for a read aloud and journal response. Language arts activites are done independently during that time slot when I am not meeting with a group. Depending on my class, I have had 120 minute blocks as well. This was when I had a class with 13 ESL students and 6 different reading levels. I had to allow myself enough time for small groups and the ESL teacher's push in time was factored into that.
Hope this helps.

I have about 80 min. for reading, spelling, grammar, cursive, and vocabulary and then about 40 min. for writing, which is also my social studies block. No wonder it's hard to fit everything in!!!!

I live in Az, and was looking at our Dept. of Ed website. It was listed somewhere under the common core area.

Ours is 120 minutes. Spelling is first for about 20 minutes followed by centers while I do guided reading and last is writing for about 25 minutes. 120 minutes sound like a lot but it goes by so fast that I always wish I had more time to fit everything in!
