A Day In My Life and a Freebie!

I am linking up with Katie at Adventures of a 6th grade Teacher to tell you all about a typical school day for me. 

5:45 - Alarm goes off on my phone...fumble until I hit snooze. Hit snooze about 5 more times. Really need to get back to my getting up and working out before school...can someone send me some motivation?
6:15 - Finally get up. Get in shower.
6:35 - Iron clothes (that I usually have set out, but didn't iron)
6:40 - Turn on coffee, fill water jug (I drink A LOT of water)
6:45 - Dry hair (this takes forever because it's way too long!), put on makeup, get dressed, get breakfast ready, kiss hubby bye, leave
7:10 - Go back in to get phone/jump drive/whatever I left
7:20 - Arrive at school. Put out morning work, scramble to get things ready, go make copies, etc.  
7:50 - Go get kids from lab
7:55 - Kids do morning work, I check folders, email, post attendance (if I remember)
8:10 - Morning Meeting: calendar, daily news, calendar songs
8:30 - Reading/Language Arts Block starts with whole group lesson/activity
9:15 - Start Workshops (literacy centers)...pull guided reading groups while other groups work on centers related to what they're working on in small group
10:45 - Come back to whole group - sing song
10:50 - Snack: Kids listen to HeidiSongs sight word CDs in hopes some of the 110 words we have will sink in
11:10 - Take kids to P.E. (they stay 40 min. then Coach takes them to wheel class) Go make copies, print centers/games on office computer, go to Deeanna's room to talk/plan/eat M&Ms
12:30 - Pick kids up from wheel class (Yes, we have 80 min. planning) Go back to room, play missing number math game, count to 100, count by 10s
12:40 - Lunch: Stay with kids, try to eat lunch while standing up while kids discuss who will get to take my trash
1:15 - Math Lesson/Math Centers
2:15 - Science/S.S./Art/Play centers if we have time
2:45 - Car riders leave
2:55 - 1st load bus riders leave
3:05 - Take 2nd load bus riders to bus...stay for bus duty
3:15-4:00 - Try to get ready for tomorrow, see what everyone forgot to take home, load bag with stuff to cut/make/etc.

Not too exciting, but that's it :)

Now here's a little Valentine's freebie for you. I'm *trying* to get my Valentine's Pack finished before the end of the week, but here's a little real/nonsense word center for you. Just click on the picture to get it. Let me know if you're able to use it....have a great day off or back at school (why isn't everyone off today?)

  4. I just downloaded your cute heartbreaker from TPT. Thanks for sharing. I love seeing other teachers schedules. I am in an area where we still have 1/2 day Kindergarten. It is crazy trying to fit all our curriculum in 3 hours a day!
