Last year, I was based partially in the computer lab and partially in another classroom. This year I'm lucky to be in the computer lab full time!
A couple of things to consider about my schedule… I work at a Title I school. This means the school forms a committee or assigns an administrator to design the schedules for the entire school.
You are expected to follow this schedule and adhere to it with fidelity. I have very limited control over my math, reading, and science times. Not all time frames are set in stone and some days I find that I am only able to get through half of what I planned to complete.
There is always a balance between learning and time management. Like finish your make up, or set up for centers. I greet my kiddos at the door and say good morning to each student as they enter.
When my kiddos come in, they put away their backpacks and copy their homework into their planners. I work around the room to check planners for parent signatures. This is also the time that I am talking with my students about their weekend, games, recitals, and practices.
Although this is a busy time, it is one of my favorite.
After students have written their homework in their planners, they are off to complete their first intervention time for the day. It is done on the computer and all students participate. The program my district uses is called Waterford.
There is also a math and science component. My district requires that my students receive 20 minutes of reading and 20 minutes of math everyday through this program.
While students are working through their lessons, I use this time to pull students for intervention. Sometimes I completing make up work, other times doing a reteach. Either way, the students that I pull to receive intervention will have to make up their missed time later.
Our phonics instruction time is another intervention time. As soon as my kiddos get off the computer, they head to their SIPPS classroom for differentiated phonics instruction.
Students are assessed at the beginning of the year and placed into specific entry levels in the program. Since not all students are placed in the same grouping, my second-grade team shares our students.
One teacher teaches one group of kiddos, while another teaches a different group. The lower groups have less students while the on-level groups and higher are much larger. This allows teachers with the lowest quartile performers to reteach and provide small group instruction.
Students are assessed every lessons and shifted as needed. Back in my room, students wait at their seat then we do a quick brainbreak using GoNoodle. The kiddos love this and I love using the time to allow for all my students to trickle back in from their SIPPS lessons.
After one video, students meet me down on carpet at the front of my room and we start our morning meeting.
We discuss the date no calendar time in 2nd grade, but we always discuss how to write and say the date! Then, discuss any important upcoming events. Then we move to our learning objectives for the day and discuss the timing of the important things: A typical whole group reading includes a mini lesson of some sort and then a shared reading of a close reading text.
This story might be read aloud by me or listened to through a read aloud on the computer. Then, we complete a guided lesson that focuses on one aspect of the story. This is followed up with an independent practice of the standard for that week.Photos related to Valid Letter Writing format Grade 2 (20 photos) Do not forget to follow the following image gallery, which also includes the Letter Writing Format Grade 2 Inspirationa Letter Template Year 2 Inspirationa Letter Writing Worksheets For photo showed above.
