Day in the Life of an Elementary Student

Ever wonder what the typical schedule looks like for one of our elementary students? Each day looks a little different, but incorporates differentiated instruction, outdoor learning, and one-on-one teaching to help our students reach their fullest potential.

Day in the Life of an Elementary Student

8:20am  Arrival:

Students arrive, pick their best learning spot for the day and work on a STEM Bin activity.  STEM bins allow students to use different materials to build structures using their creativity and imaginations.

8:30am  Morning Meeting: 

As a class, we recite our Class Commitment, go over our daily schedule and participate in a morning greeting that helps us feel connected right off the bat.

8:40am  Reading Rotations:

Students receive “bookmarks” that tell them where their stations are for the day.  This allows for differentiation and allows students to easily move groups as their needs change from skill to skill.

10:00am Recess: 

Students go outside (rain, snow or shine) to play and run off some energy to help them learn their best the rest of the morning.

10:15am  Snack and Number Talk: 

We eat our snacks while talking about numbers!  This time is used to help strengthen students’ number sense through mental math and flexible thinking.

 

10:20am  Math Rotations: 

Students are put into rotations.  Our rotations are teacher time, Independent skill work (with extension activities), Reflex Math on the computers (Fact Fluency), Math Games with our assistant teacher.

11:15am Spanish: 

Mrs. Doerr comes in to teach us new Spanish words and to expose us to places all around the world!

12:00pm Lunch Recess:

More time to run off some steam!

12:30pm  Lunch: 

Students bring their own lunch or get to indulge in a delicious home-cooked meal from our amazing in-house cook.

1:00pm  Music:

In music class students learn how to read and write music, as well as how to play different instruments.

1:30pm PE: 

Coach Matt from Amazing Athletes comes to Legacy to teach us team work, agility and fitness through sport and games.

2:00pm Whole Group Reading:

Together we learn new comprehension strategies that test our higher-level thinking skills and allow us to become better readers and writers.

2:30pm Writer’s Workshop:

Students become authors through units of study.  Throughout the year students will learn how to write personal narratives, informational reports, opinion papers and fictional narratives.

3:20pm: Clean-up and a time to gather to talk about our day.

3:30pm: High-fives and hugs as we head home from a productive day.
