CJayne Winner, Typical Day, and Spelling City - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

CJayne Winner, Typical Day, and Spelling City


The lucky winner of the ***brand new*** desk calendar from C. Jayne Teach is Emily Farmer!!!

I don’t know about you all, but I will be putting one of those calendars in my shopping cart as soon as I finish this post :)


I have had some requests to share how I set up my day.  This is what my day is looking like currently.  Now as the year progresses I know I will have to make some adjustments.  I don’t feel good about having so little time for Science and Social Studies, but I LOVE integrating my content into my Reader’s Workshop.  I also feel like I need to have TONS of time to address the skill of reading now and as my students become more proficient readers than I can shorten that time a little bit.

I hope this little peek at my day can help some people out!

I also am SO excited to share that my students will be rocking Spelling City next week!  If you haven’t ever used Spelling City---you are definitely missing out!  I've been given a Premium Membership to VocabularySpellingCity.com for a candid, personal, online review.VocabularySpellingCity helps students study word lists using 26 different learning activities such as Unscramble, Hangman, WordFind, and Crossword Puzzle.  Teachers can create their own spelling lists, find published lists already available on the site, or use any of dozens of  free teaching resources on topics such as Analogies and Syllables.  Be sure to come back in a few weeks to read about my experience.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday! I KNOW you are looking forward to the long weekend, because I am too!

  1. Thank you. This was super helpful for me. I've been working on how to keep Daily 5 while doing my required Writers and Readers Workshops. This makes sense to me.
