I have a very short amount of time with my kids because I teach in a magnet school where they go to 2 expressive arts classes a day instead of just one specials class like most do. So here is how my schedule for next year looks:

7:50-9:50 In class with me 9:50-12:15 Gone to expressive arts classes/lunch 12:15-3:00 In class with me

That's pretty close anyway. So, considering I have to teach 90 min of math, and fit in science and SS, how should I schedule my time?

Thanks! Stephanie :
