I was just wondering if anyone can give an example of your schedule...
I had planned instruction from 8:50 to 10:20 as reading , math..but no stations or breaking into groups until 10:30....'then centers in the pm

but they are too wiggly and there are a couple behavior issues, so i need to switch it i think...
thanks!

Thanks so much- yours looks great- you can go outside for a morning recess? I am sure that helps-

I am thinking of doing a few movement breaks - they like the songs.... do you have any carpet game ideas that would be a break ? I already tried Simon says...

Also do you rotate during centers? I tried and they like the centers but they are very chatty... it is hard to get their attention to be quiet and rotate-
It is easier to get them to look at me when they are on the carpet..
If you have any transition ideas for that I would so appreciate it...

Absolutely. They need it and so do I!

Nothing really new. I do like using go noodle or songs that have movements to go with them.

I do not, but I know I'm in the minority in this. I've never liked doing rotations - it makes my morning feel chaotic and I don't like being tied to a 10 or 15 minute group. I like the flexibility to go longer (or shorter) if needed. My kids go to one center per day (so 4 over the course of the week), and then I have drawers of may-do literacy activities they can choose from when they are done. I actually change in January, though, and we go to a must-do/may-do format where I am pulling smaller groups throughout the morning while they are working on their must-do activities.



My biggest transition thing is our clean-up song. I love that all I have to do is turn on the song and they know what to do. They have the duration of the song to be finished and on the carpet ready to go. It's terrific!

Just wondering- What clean up song do you use? I have one but it is too long and I want them to be on the rug sooner (I am tired of the song too- haha)

Another question- what type of "may do" literacy activities do you have in your drawers? I like that idea!

I use "The World is a Rainbow" by Greg & Steve for clean-up. It's a good length and it talks about working together.

For may-do bins, it depends on the time of year. Right now I have things like alphabet puzzles, wikki sticks and letter cards, magnetic letters to either match letters or practice names, stuff like that. I always have handwriting as well as some kind of open writing activity (blank books, write a letter, stamp a story, sticker stories, etc.).

You are so helpful- but how long is your literacy centers though - I have a block of 55 minutes to fill?

So right now - they have one activity and one may do in the bucket ? And then back to carpet with clean up song ?

I'm jealous of the multiple recess times! So much more developmentally appropriate.

Here's my schedule.

9:05-9:30: Whole group reading
9:30-10:45: Small groups & literacy centers
10:45-10:55: Transition/bathroom
10:55-11:25: Lunch
11:30-11:50: Recess
11:50-12:20: Writing
12:25-1:10: Specials
1:15-2:30: Math (Usually I do a whole group followed by centers and small groups as needed)
2:30-3:00: Sci or SS (rotates each unit)
3:00: Prep for dismissal

ELA Centers Question
Old 09-11-2019, 02:09 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #10

Do your ELA centers have one activity at each, for example, a letter game or phonemic awareness activity, or several activities to choose from? You said they go to one rotation a day and I see that your ELA Center block is 45 Minutes. Do they stay at that one center the whole time?
