Here's my lunch box and contents from today
I forgot to eat my pistachios and when I came into my room after school all I had left were shells all over my desk from my son. He got to them first. The nerve.
P.S. I am on a diet and I have lost 7 pounds!!!
So here's my lunch situation:
We have recess first 10:40 to 11:10 and then lunch from 11:10 to 11:40. I have to be with the kids for one of the two times. Our team switches off. By the time we get to our rooms from one or the other duty it boils down to about a 20 minute lunch. If you are heating anything up then you get 18 minutes. Some days it feels like 5 minutes.
But I get 45 minutes every day for specials.......... Moment of silence for the specials teachers.

Here's what the chart looks like.
Before this, I kept finding myself redirecting everyone over my group that was trying to read to me. It was NOT good. This changed everything for me.
Here's what it looks like in action:
Group at computers is doing raz-kids
|She was thrilled they had an astronaut book since we are studying the moon|
Daily 5 Choice group can choose from:
Read to Self
Read to Someone
|My Easter tree looks a fright!|
Or Work on Writing
My reading group can finally get my attention instead of dealing with me redirecting over the top of them!!!
I made some Daily 5 signs at the beginning of the school year and we still recite the rules about once a week. There are 5 of these.
I know it's the last part of the school year, but it's never too late to
