Two Posts in Two Hours?!

It’s because I’m a sucker for a good linky party.  And, of course, my paralyzing FOMO.  An old roommate gave me FOMO and since then it has really negatively interfered with a lot of my productivity.

In any case, Susan over at Thank God it’s First Grade just moved from Las Vegas to Mass, and is hosting a super interesting linky.
And, since I have a paralyzing fear of missing out on fun, I of course need to participate.  Despite that the fact that I have already blogged once today and despite the fact that I have a grand total of zero lessons planned for tomorrow.  Actually, that’s not true.  I have one lesson planned for tomorrow.  I planned my whole week of Fundations before brunch this morning.  Without any more babbling here’s my schedule:

And here are some preemptive answers.  My grade level partner and I set this schedule together, and our admin team approved it, so we have roughly the same schedule, but we set our blocks.  Some times (GLM, specials, lunch, etc) are set by admin, but outside of those times we set our daily schedule, which is a nice piece of autonomy.  We have duty 4 times a week–3 lunch and 1 breakfast.  I didn’t mark this on my schedule, which I also didn’t realize until now, but when I go to GLM my students go to 2 consecutive specials.  If there’s no GLM one week then I have all of that as personal planning time (which is really nice, but doesn’t happen terribly often).  Earlier this summer I blogged about Responsive Classroom and the RC structures that our school uses.  Morning Meeting is one of them, so MM has a very distinct structure and the kids really get into the structure/routine of it–greeting, share, activity, morning message.  I’ve also added in calendar math this year, which isn’t really part of RC, but has been helpful for me and building in some additional math time for my littles.  
If you have any other questions about my daily schedule I’d be happy to answer them.
Happy Sunday, y’all!  (And go Colts!)
