We would like to tell you how the day works because we have experienced it ourselves. First we come in the classroom put down our chair, order lunch and do the work that is written on the whiteboard. Then we go to our special according to the day that it is. On Monday and Thursday we have gym. On Tuesday we have band or reporters it depends on what you signed up for. On Wednesday we have music and if it is a long day we have band or reporters and library. Lastly on Friday we have art. Then when we get back from special we have snack. Next we have math. Then we transition into reader’s and writer’s workshop. At about 12:45 we go to lunch. After lunch we go to recess. After recess on Tuesdays and Thursdays we have science. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we have social studies after recess. Then we pack up, write down our homework in our GO-binders and get our mail and homework. Then we settle down with a read aloud to end our exciting day. That was a sample of a typical day in Miss Yorston’s class.
