A Day In The Life...

A Day in My Life... I thought this would be a lot of fun to participate in, so here goes!

 The Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher

5:45- Dumb alarm clock goes off... Ugh! I hit the snooze until 6:10...

6:10{ish} I stumble out of bed and turn on my Kuerig {puffy heart Adore this machine!} make a bowl of Quaker oats to go along with my heavenly cup of coffee goodness...

6:20 sit on the couch to eat breakfast, watch the news, and surf Pinterest;)

6:30-6:35 begin getting my self together

6:50-6:55 wake up Chloe and Seth... They beg for 5-10 more minutes... Wonder where they get that from....dumb alarm clock ;)

7:45- scramble out the door... Lucky for me I seriously live about 6-7 blocks from our school... Pre-K -12 is all on one campus.

7:50- walk in the 4th grade building and say a happy "good morning!" to my fellow 4th grade teachers

8:05-8:10 Students arrive

8:15-8:20 pledge of allegiance/ moment of silence observed

8:20-9:00 daily independent reading time

9:00-9:45 Activity

9:45-11:00 Math Time

11:00-11:20 Skills time (focusing on Drops in the Bucket or handwriting)

11:30-12:20 Lunch / Recess. Monday so it's my duty day...the teacher I'm paired with and I rotate so one week it's cafeteria and playground duty and the next week it's just playground:)

12:25-12:30 bathroom breaks and diffusing any embers brought in from recess;)

12:30-1:15 Spelling/language arts

1:20-2:30 Reading Time

2:30-3:00 Science/social studies. I rotate these two subjects... Or at least I try! My school is adamant that we focus more on math and reading than anything else:(

3:00 clean up, pack up, stack up

3:10 students dismissed

3:20-4:30 can't always account for this time... But I try to make good use of it... Cleaning up or maybe just grading papers or prepping for tomorrow.

4:30-5:00 I try to be home most days by this time if not earlier so my personal children don't feel as though they live at school;). Go for a walk...still working out hard as part of my 2012 resolutions!!!

5:30{ish} start making supper Yay!Cale is home right now so he takes Seth to basketball practice...Chloe stays home with me;)

6:30 eats upper with the family... The entire family at the dining room table... I try to have at least 4-5 sit down meals a week... The hubs works in the oil field so he isn't home on any kind of consistent basis.

7:00 clean up,showers, etc. get ready for the next day...

8:00 tv time, Pinterest, blog reading, reading a book time

10:30-11:00 try to be in bed before 11:00 but my night owl habits don't always cooperate;)
