      I teach 4th, 5th and 6th grades.  We have three "special areas" in my school: Art, Music and P.E, so we have a three week rotation in our schedule.  I see the same group of kids for 5 days in a row, then the schedule rotates.  For example, I see 3 6th grades, 2 4th grades, and 2 fifth grades a day for 45 minutes. 

      The thing I love about this schedule is that I see the same kids 5 days in a row, which helps my planning because most projects I do require more than 1 day.  I think this helps the kids remember more of what I've taught, instead of seeing them once a week and having to pick up where they left off a week ago. 

      Hope this helps!

      Per my request & through my research, my school switched to a rotating
      schedule this year. Here is an idea of how it goes:

      Each grade level is assigned a time slot- for instance, fourth grade has their
      special every day at 9:00-9:40. On A days, they go to Music. On B days, they
      go to Phys Ed. On C days, they go to Art. On D days, they go to Computer.
      Then, the cycle starts over again and keeps rotating regardless of what day of
      the week it is.

      A, B, C, D, A (weekend)
      B, C, D, A, B (weekend)
      A, B, C, D, A (weekend) Etc.

      This has been so wonderful! It has equalized everything out even though we
      still only get them in 40 minute incriments. If you have any questions, let me
