    1. I work my social studies and science into my ELA block and my workstations. and the short recess is gone come Christmas... :(

  13. awesome!! thanks for sharing!

  14. Thank you so much for answering my questions! And it's ok that I didn't win your products considering I bought 4 out of 5 already!

  15. I'm a little jealous of your recess times too!! We were told we kids could only have one 15 minute recess at the beginning of the year but everyone has pretty much started squeezing in an extra ten minutes just to make it through the afternoon. I *love* checking out other people's schedules though!! And I'm really diggin that Read It & Write Pack!

  17. OMG...I ADORE your comprehension pack!!!! It will be my new go to for writing!! Thanks

  18. A copy of your schedule is a HUGE blessing! I was just telling my sweet Kinder neighbor that I need help tweaking my schedule. Thanks!

  19. my kids get a half hour for lunch and recess (and me too!) so jealous! Thank you for sharing this! What are the work stations that your kids do during remediation? Are they different from daily 5 and math tubs? Also what do your students do for some of the parts of daily 5? I'm good with listening to reading, read to self, and partner reading, but could use some suggestions for word work and work on writing. Thanks!


  20. LOVE the comprehension pack!!!!!
