    This example is not my daily schedule. However, for my classroom’s daily schedule, we are on a balanced day. We have 2 nutrition/recess breaks, which creates three 100 minute blocks for instructional time. For the first block, we gather as a group for approximately 15 minutes. We welcome the students and review our morning graph. Then, we have time for writing and free play. The second block, we have a planning time teacher who does gym/music/library, depending on the day. When we return to the classroom, we have literacy activities (small groups) and free play. During the third block, we gather on the carpet and read a story. I try to find books that involve math concepts for the story. We then have math activities (small groups) and free play. Hope that helps.
