Category Archives: Schedule for Full Day Kindergarten
Here is a look at my new lesson plan page/schedule for this coming year. We added an hour to our day this coming year, so the schedule changed a bit! We are also eating lunch later in the morning (not at 10:25 anymore!!). We will be eating at 11:00, so it doesn’t quite feel so much like brunch anymore!
I’m uploading it as a PDF because I have used some new clipart and I can’t share it in an unprotected document.
I could create a more generic one if you need me to for you to use, but it won’t have the cute border. :) Just the cute font and dashed line boxes–let me know!
Here is what my daily schedule will look like this school year (for the most part. when we don’t have a special event. or when we get off schedule. or when there’s a snow day!)
8:00-8:30 Welcome, Morning Message, Read Aloud, Breakfast
8:30-8:55 Shared Reading/Predictable Chart/Song/Fingerplay/Rhyme
8:55-9:10 Open Court/Imagine It!
9:10-9:40 Literacy Work Stations
9:50-10:20 Writer’s Workshop
11:15-11:55 Science/Social Studies
Here is a copy of the lesson play layout that I will use this year:
I’ve had lots of requests asking about how I get everything done in a day, so I thought I would post my schedule and show you:
8:00-8:10 students arrive
8:20-8:50 we do calendar and update our binders
8:50-9:45 Morning Message, Shared Reading w/ Big Books, Predictable Chart
9:45-10:25 Literacy Work Stations (I also do assessments during this time or work with small groups, my assistant works with a small group daily during this time)
11:30-11:40 Quiet Rest time
12:05-12:25 Science (this would be the time we would do experiments, because 9 times out of 10, I’ve picked a Science themed big book for Shared Reading, or have some way to tie it in)
12:25-12:50 Writer’s Workshop
1:45 Pack-up then Discovery time
2:15 car pick up dismissal
2:20 bus dismissal
I hope this helps show how I get everything done–it’s all about using your time in the best possible way, am I flexible in this schedule!? YES!! I have to be!
