Re: How much time?
- I teach K-6 at a private school. Our school is
different from others in our schedule. Kids don't have
a self-contained classroom, but they rotate to
specialty teachers for each subject. It works out
wonderful because they have special groupings for math
and they are grouped by their ability level rather
than grade level. Each period is 40 minutes long.
(There are double periods of Language Arts/Social
Studies.) Anyways... I see each class K-6 twice per
week for 40 min. For me this is the perfect amount of
time. I think a little bit longer for the older kids
wouldn't be bad, but at the elementary level 40 min.
is perfect for their attention span. The kids also
have study halls a couple times a week where I can
give them work to catch up on. Marcia in WI
