A Day in my shoes

Miss Klohn is hosting a linky party

So here goes....

4:40-Alarm goes off.  I meet my teacher work-out buddies at the YMCA at 5:00.  It is more therapy than working out.  We laugh, we cry, we cuss but after a session we are always ready to tackle our day (2 Kindergarten teachers and a special education teacher). 

6:00-Shower, coffee, and internet surfing, 

7:00-Peel the kiddos out of bed, feed them and get them dressed.

7:30-Say good-bye to hubby and J and finished getting ready, my hair is usually close to dry by now. 

8:00-Walk across the street to school with M.  (You read that right!)  Time to make sure that C's picture schedule is accurate. 

8:15-Bell rings and kinders sprint down the hall to my classroom.  I say, "Good morning let's try that again."  Kids come in and journal

8:35- Morning meeting and pledge

8:45- Begin whole group reading lesson out of Houghton Mifflin Journeys

9:15-  Begin small group literacy rotations.  Four groups, four rotations.  

10:15-  RECESS!

10:45- Math mini lesson followed by some guided math 

11:15-  Lunch/recess!

12:00-  Read to Self/  C has ipad time if he has earned  4 tokens (behavior modification), the ipod touch gets rotated amongst the other students.

12:30-  To the computer lab for math work on Johnnie's math page or Writer's Workshop or Science or Social Studies or a craft this is the time where I squeeze everything else in. 

1:00- Handwriting without Tears

1:15- Recess!! 

1:45- Snack time and we turn on Go Diego Go if D has earned it (behavior modification)

2:00- Special classes/Plan time!! 

3:00-Kids get ready to go home and leave. 

3:15-  I teach after school math academy for students that are not at grade level.

5:00- Pick up kids from daycare, cook or grab supper out of supper box to head to dance, piano or church.  


8:00-Start Bedtime routines

9:00-Get ready for the next day
9:30-Go to bed myself

My life is sort of crazy but it works for us.  I really want to add Zumba class on Thursdays at 7:30 but I'm hesitant to add one more thing to my schedule, however I know I would love it!!!!  What do you think I should do????


  1. OMG! you are so dedicated to exercise, you can see on my day tht I turn my alarm off instead of getting up to exercise!
