Daily Schedule 2011 - 2012

This is my proposed daily schedule for the coming year. I'm attempting to combine our district-mandated "core curriculum" program, Treasures, with the Daily 5. We'll see how it goes!

I am certain that I will have five guided reading groups - the "approaching," "on-level," and "beyond" groups that Treasures expects (and provides resources for), plus "way below" and "way above" groups - this is based on my experience with guided reading after many many years if teaching first and second grade. So, I have to juggle groups during the week (I do always meet with the below and approaching groups EVERY day), and sometimes fit groups in at odd times during the day.

As you can see, we'll be doing more of a "Daily 3" with perhaps a 4th round after lunch during the Treasures writing period.

Anyway, like I said, we'll see how it goes!
