Kindergarten Schedule Overview
Here it is! That moment when kindergarten teachers look at all of your ideas and try to figure out HOW to fit it all in! Here are my tips for the BEST kindergarten schedule to start your school year off great!
This post will be an overview of our day… If I went into great detail in this post… whew… it would read like a novel. At the end of this post, you will find additional information about the different components of our academic schedule. that may be useful! But let’s start by looking at what my kindergarten classroom looked like during the last year I taught full day kindergarten.
8:00-8:30 Morning Work
So, my students walk in the door, anywhere between 8:00 and 8:30. Most of the students ride the bus, so they all arrive at different times. We also offer breakfast from 8:00 to 8:30, so students filter into the cafeteria. I really can’t have a lesson for this time, so I have “morning work” as part of our daily routine. It has to be predictable, engaging, and meaningful. Therefore, I usually have a few options that I rotate in throughout the week.
We start with tracing the sentence at the beginning of the year. Then quickly move on to writing the sentence (around mid-September). I support them at first with reading the sentence (but I make them use the pictures to figure out the word “pencil”.) Soon, the students are independent and SO PROUD that they can read the sentences on their own. You can find a gazillion versions of these Read, Trace, Glue, Draw pages HERE… or snag the ENDLESS bundle HERE.
We also love practicing our letters (and sight words) with these editable activity sheets for my little learners.
- Help Me Help You Letters
- Help Me Help You Sight Words
When students finish their morning work, they grab their dessert tub (thank you Cara Carroll for that term.) You can read about how these work in THIS post… Click HERE.
8:30-8:40 Calendar Time
Then it is time to do our “Calendar.” Listen… our calendar is not like your traditional calendar.
We certainly introduce it at the beginning of the year, but it is not something you will hear me doing in October and November… they have it…! Instead, we spirally review literacy and math skills. I model it with our document camera and students also do the work with their version.
Each day is slightly different but there is a predictable pattern to this daily activity. Around November, my student of the day leads this and I walk around and support students. EVERY student is working. EVERY student is learning. No beauty shop or shoe repairman time here allowed. You can find these morning activities here:
- Building Skills Calendar: Daily Language and Math Practice Bundle
8:40-8:50 Shared Reading and Phonemic Awareness
We love our poetry time! Each week we start a new poem. We practice it for fluency and also work on a plethora of literacy skills. You can read more about my 5-day fluency plan here:
- 5 Day Fluency Made Easy!
Check out these fun videos that match the poems! You can find all the music and videos by clicking below!
- Poetry Music and Videos
8:50-9:20 Phonemic Awareness & Explicit Phonics Instruction
We start this block of time with some phonemic awareness practice. We love following Deanna Jump’s program.
- Phonological & Phonemic Awareness Complete Program
We then move onto our explicit phonics instruction. Students learn letters, path of motion and how words work!
- Kindergarten Phonics
- First Grade Phonics
- Kindergarten Digital Phonics
- First Grade Digital Phonics
9:20-9:50 Science of Reading
This is the time we practice our fluency drills, dictation, and learn new high frequency words. We do a ton of blending and segmenting of words during this whole group time. We also work on orthographically mapping words. Using the Science of Reading approach is the best way to prevent learning delays in early childhood education. So much time has historically been spent on reading interventions, when prevention in early learning can make all the difference. Often times students with special needs are not identified in kindergarten, but if your school district or kindergarten program includes the Science of Reading you will find a decrease in those groups of students who need special education for reading instruction.
You can find this instruction here:
- Not Your Mother’s Reading Kindergarten
- Not Your Mother’s Reading First Grade
Students also have a decodable text each week that reviews the sounds, blending, and concepts they are working on for the week.
Sometimes we use a printable book, but other times we use the digital version.
Aww… teacher prep time… right? WRONG! This is the time to have meetings… virtually every second is filled with a mandatory task. Sigh… sometimes we even get to use the restroom! BONUS!
10:30-11:10 Small Group Reading, and Literacy Centers Round
I love small group instruction. This is the time when my students go to their literacy centers and I pull small groups for reading instruction. I start reading groups each year around the 4-6th week of school. We spend the first 4-6 weeks learning how to work independently at centers.
This task board tells my students where they will be going for the day. This visual schedule helps students gain independence. You can find the task cards HERE. Additional classroom organizational resources can be found HERE.
Students spend 20 minutes at each rotation. I pull students from their stations or centers to meet with me for small group.
At my table we do word work, high-frequency word work, blending practice, and read a text. We also work on decoding and encoding words.
Here is a peek at our decodable readers. Small group is a great time to practice these skills. Research tells us that students need additional time practicing these skills to make them permanent and transferable. So we need a variety of books students can use to gain confidence with applying the phonics skills they learned in our whole group instruction.
We also know that some students may need to see a skill 3-5 times, while others with language learning differences might need 20-30 exposures to a skill.
In addition to blending and reading the text, we also want to include vocabulary development. We also want to be sure we are encoding and not just decoding words. We include dictation practice.
You can learn about our decodable readers by clicking here:
- SCIENCE OF READING DECODABLE READERS BUNDLE | K & 1
Quick Handwriting Practice
In between rotations, we add a quick handwriting practice.
After all of the letters have been taught, we move onto 1-minute timings for muscle memory practice! Minute to Win It! is one of our favorites! It makes handwriting practice fun!
- Make it Neat! Handwriting Practice, Instruction, and Fluency
11:10-11:50 Writers Workshop
Writers workshop is the best time of the day. This is writing time This sacred and I have found that my students loved to write for long periods of time with the right type of writing instruction. There is so much to be said about our workshop time… so check out this blog post to read all about it!
- Writers Workshop: Second Week of Kindergarten
11:50-12:40 Lunch and Recess!
Yay! Run! Play! Kindergarten children (and their teachers) need a good brain break… or two… or three!
12:40-1:20 Whole Group Reading, Vocabulary Work, and Interactive Writing
Again… this is a HUGE topic. Check out this blog post about interactive read alouds:
- Kindergarten Interactive Read Alouds, Assessments, and More!
Although we ALWAYS recommend teaching an interactive read aloud lesson with the actual book, having another model of reading fluency is wonderful and Storyline Online is an excellent resource.
TIP: Have the students come to the carpet with all of their supplies (notebooks, lapboards, crayon/pencil box). During your lesson have them sit on their notebooks and lapboards and train them to not fiddle with their crayon box. Then when they are ready to respond in writing you will not waste the transition time.
1:20-1:40 Content Area Studies
Yes! We do science and social studies. Oftentimes… our topics tie into what we are reading. Deanna and I had fun creating Science and STEM activities that match up with the Engaging Readers books.
Here is a blog post all about Engaging Readers Science, Math and STEM!
- Read Aloud Science, Math, and More
Click below to see our Engaging STEM units:
- Engaging STEM: Science, Math, and More!
Yay! Yes… you get to go play AGAIN! RUN! PLAY!
2:00-2:30 Whole Group Math
My district had a kindergarten curriculum that was NOT hands on learning. OY! So Deanna Jump and I created our own that we started on the first day of school. Our students have had great success! More on how math workshop looks in our kindergarten day by clicking:
- Kindergarten Math
2:40-2:50 Math Journals
We love our math journals and they are so easy to fit into your kindergarten schedule… they are FAST! 10 minutes TOPS!
I cut out the journal prompts and the students glue them in their journals directly… want more on how I do math journals quickly? Here is a blog post all about math journals in kindergarten:
- Daily Math Practice Through Math Journals
We have literacy journals, too! Click here:
- Simple Kindergarten Literacy Journals for Daily Language Practice
2:50-3:20 Math Centers (My intervention and small group math time)
Eek! We love math stations so we make sure to include it in our daily kindergarten schedule! This is where we “play” [um… they learn, but it feels like play. ] Students over-learn skills in math stations. In this way, they don’t lose proficiency in one skill when we move onto another skill in our whole group math. Just Roll With It stations can be found here. (Students LOVE the cube!) Additionally, because it was the end of the day, I wanted something super engaging to keep those tired kindergarten students excited.
This activity is from this unit: Math Task Cards for Kindergarten.
What does a Half Day Kindergarten Schedule Look Like?
Sigh… It makes my heart hurt to think about fitting it all in! However, I would suggest the following:
- Combine your stations into only one time. Make half of your activities literacy based, the other half math based.
- Alternate Writer’s Workshop with Whole Group Reading/Interactive Writing.

A Kindergarten Daily Schedule | Research and Play
Since I last wrote about our daily schedule, a few things have changed in our kindergarten classroom! The biggest difference has been the incorporation of rotations to teach math and ELA skills. Those two areas of our day, along with our reading and writing workshop times, have been shifted and adjusted many times. I’ve finally found a schedule that allows my students plenty of time to work and doesn’t feel rushed!
I currently teach in a full day kindergarten that is 5.5 hours long. It feels like a perfect amount of time for this age group. We’re able to get our goals accomplished without feeling rushed or squeezed for time. I’ve taught in half day (3 hours) and a very full day (7 hours), but I’ve found the Goldilocks schedule with this school (just right).
Now, let’s get to the schedule. There are some main areas we’ll cover: academics (content blocks), social/emotional (play and meetings), and specials classes. Some things are set in stone, but most things during our day happen when they do because I’ve been allowed to choose that time for our class. Our admin is very supportive and teachers at my site have a say in many (but not all) scheduling decisions.
Academics (Content Blocks)
- Math (including number talk and rotations) – 45 minutes
- Phonics Workshop – 20 minutes
- Writing Workshop (including interactive writing) – 35 minutes
- ELA Rotations – 30 minutes
- Reading Workshop (including read aloud/shared reading) – 45 minutes
- Science – 45 minutes, one day a week
These content areas include many different types of instruction, like mini lessons, rotations, small group work, independent work, conferring, and share outs. I’ll break down each one into the instruction model I use.
Math consists of a number talk/warm up (15 min), and rotations (30 min). During that time, I’m able to give whole group instruction and allow for differentiated small groups. Our number talk time allows me to introduce and practice content with all students, then when we break into our rotations I’m able to dive deeper with small groups of kids based on their specific needs. My number talk time is my whole group math instruction. To see what rotation time looks like, please read this post that goes into much more detail about them! You can also read this post to see what our number talk/warm up routine is like!
This is when I use the Units of Study for phonics from Teachers College. It is a 20 minute whole group lesson with all the kids on the rug. We learn the foundational skills standards and also link to the reading and writing standards. Using the phonics UoS has been amazing so far, and I especially love how it connects to the UoS for reading and writing. If you don’t have the Units of Study, you can use this time to explicitly teach foundational skills. In the past, I have used the Heggerty Phonological Awareness curriculum for a warm up followed by my Foundational Skills mini lessons.
Writing WorkshopAfter a GoNoodle break between phonics and writing, we begin our workshop time. Like I said before, I use the Units of Study from Teachers College. The format of writing workshop is as follows: Whole group teaching (including student practice on the rug), independent writing time (when you can pull students to confer or have writing partners work together), and whole group share out. Early in the year, I am not conferring as a one-on-one meeting but as I’m walking around. I like to stop by students as they are working, ask them questions, give any tips, and move on. The main goal is to get students independently writing, so I don’t scaffold very much during their writing time. Also, don’t forget the share out! It’s one of the best parts! Interactive writing doesn’t happen within this time, but at the end of the day during our closing circle. It’s a powerful tool for supporting writing growth, so I try to include it daily.
After watching students work in phonics and writing workshops, I am able to see if anyone needs additional support on the skills we’re practicing that day. Also, after reviewing classroom data from formative assessments, I’ve created groups of students with similar needs. So, this time of the day is set aside for groups of students to receive additional support. It follows a similar structure to years past (click here to read an older post), but this year I am working on making sure that groups are very intentionally planned so that their activities can be even more specific to their needs. Since I do have a classroom aide, both she and I have dedicated groups. I work with students who need additional support on a skill, and she works with students to do letter or word sorts based on the letters or words we studied that day in phonics workshop. The other groups are either playing differentiated games or activities based on phonics skills or they are using the iPads for practicing on Lexia (a leveled program provided by our district that is designed to support ELA skills).
Similar to our writing workshop time, reading workshop follows a whole group, independent work, partner work, and share out format. Before we start our whole group time, though, we have a read aloud or shared reading. This typically happens before lunch, then we start workshop time after lunch. During independent reading (or private reading as the UoS calls it), I can pull reading groups. I don’t have a lot of time, though, because the reading stamina for a kindergartners between the months of September-January is pretty low! I have 10 minutes to work with a group while the rest of the class reads. This is when I can do a strategy group (students who have similar errors in their reading or need coaching with a similar skills) or a guided reading group (students who are reading at the same level who I want to coach and push to the next level).
We do science class once a week for 45 minutes. On this day, we will skip our ELA rotations and read aloud. It’s not preferred, but with a 5.5 hour day it’s the best way for us to get this instruction in. We are partnered with a local program that has a specific curriculum for teaching science, so we don’t use an adopted textbook for these skills. Also, we refer to the NGSS to see how we can pull read alouds based on the standards. Although we only have this lesson once a week, we are doing science or social studies based read alouds daily.
Social/Emotional (Play and Meetings)
- Play Centers – 15 minutes
- Morning Meeting – 20 minutes
- Snack and recess – 15 minutes
- Lunch and recess – 45 minutes
- Closing Circle – 10 minutes
These areas are just as important as the academic blocks of our day. They are a time to practice and review listening and speaking skills, behavior expectations, classroom concerns, or to celebrate growth, friendships, and interests!
I have started the day with play centers for the past 5 years, and it has been one of the best changes I’ve made in my teaching career. I used to give out morning work, but after lots of reading and researching I stopped. Play centers are a wonderful way to start the day for many reasons, but maybe the best one is that kids are excited and happy to come into the classroom! It also allows me to get attendance submitted, check folders, greet late students, and chat with the kids. It’s something that I never skip, even on days with subs, assemblies, drills, or any other thing that can potentially throw off our schedule. Click here to read a blog post from a while back about the play centers I have in my room. Since that post, I’ve also added a building area and listening center. I display the play centers on my screen with students’ names next to the pictures. I created it in PowerPoint using pictures of the students modeling the play centers from the first week of school. I rotate students’ names daily, but after a month or so I stop and let them choose which center they want to play in.
I follow the morning meeting structure from Responsive Classroom. You can head to their website to read a lot more about the benefits and structure of morning meeting. I highly suggest this book to help you plan your meetings. This is such a special time of our day where we sing, laugh, and get to know each other. It’s also where we resolve conflicts, set expectations, and learn how to be better friends and students. Unfortunately I have to skip morning meeting a couple of times a week because of our specials classes, but on those days I can address anything we missed during our Closing Circle.
Snack/Lunch and Recess
The only thing I’ll say about this part of the day is that you MUST explicitly model behavior and expectations for students during this time of day. You can’t assume that students will know how to appropriately act or play, and if there are specific rules at your school (no climbing up the slide, no playing tag, sorting your trash into recycling/composting bins) you should teach your students about them. We spend the first week of school outside with our students most days at recess even though it is our break time. We explicitly model how to use the playground equipment, what it sounds and looks like when it’s time to line up, where their trash goes, etc. If you don’t model these things, you’ll likely have more behavior issues outside. It’s worth giving up a few of my breaks to practice!
Another strategy from Responsive Classroom is closing circle. It’s a wonderful way to wrap up the day, check in with students, hear their thoughts about the day, and so on. Head to the RC website to read more, or check out this book. Even on days when our lesson ran long and we are feeling rushed before dismissal, I still include closing circle. It feels great to hear each students’ voice reflecting on their day, and it helps me gauge who I can support or check in with tomorrow morning.
Specials (Once per week)
- Music (Tuesdays)
- Library (Wednesdays)
- Art (Thursdays)
At our school, we do not have a daily specials time. On Mondays and Fridays, my class doesn’t have any specials classes. Because of our scheduling, this means that on a day when we have a specials class, something else is sacrificed. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we do not have morning meeting. On Thursdays, we do not have reading workshop. Again, it’s not preferred, but it’s what we have to do.
Well, there you have it, my entire schedule in a nutshell! I hope it stays this way for a while because I really like the flow if it all so far. Any questions? Check my Instagram where I go into detail about my day!
Daily routine of a preschooler, correct daily routine of a preschooler
Doctors, psychologists, and teachers talk about the benefits of the regime for both the child and the adult. Our physical health, psychological and emotional status depends on the diet, sleep and rest. And if we are talking about a child, then the regime is also the basis of proper education.
It turns out that for a preschool child, the concept of a regimen is a daily routine, which includes the schedule of sleep, nutrition, activities and recreation, games and walks. Parents of children aged 5-7 who attend a preschool think less about the regime. But the parents of preschoolers who do not attend kindergarten and observe the home regimen have more questions.
Why do we need a regimen?
In a situation where there is no regimen, the child may experience:
- memory impairment
- Decreased performance
- frequent respiratory illnesses
Why is this happening? The daily routine for a baby is not only a convenience for a parent or an adult whim that encourages a child to accustom a strict daily routine. The habitual mode reinforces the formation of biorhythms and conditioned reflexes, preparing the body for the performance of habitual functions, such as sleep, eating, mental activity, rest.
In addition, adherence to the regime has a positive effect on physical health, as the regime strengthens the immune system. In preschool institutions, the daily routine is strictly observed. But when bringing a preschooler home, parents do not always adhere to the regimen, in the stream of evening worries, forgetting to put the baby to bed on time, which leads to lack of sleep and, consequently, problems with morning awakening.
Find out the level of preparation of the child for school
There are rules in all spheres of our life, they are in the observance of the regime. As we said above, there is a diet for preschoolers, physical activity, sleep, games, activities.
Power mode. If we are talking about proper nutrition, then the regime is most accurately observed in preschool institutions, so it is worth focusing on the organization of nutrition in kindergarten:
- at least 4 times a day;
- hot meal at least 3 times a day;
- in terms of calories from the daily requirement: breakfast 25%, lunch 40%, afternoon snack 15%, dinner 20%;
- according to the daily calorie intake: 5 years – 2000 kcal, 6 years – 2200 kcal, 7 years – 2400 kcal;
- in quantity – should not be given a portion larger than the child usually eats (it is better to put a supplement).
The daily menu should include meat and dairy products, bread, vegetables and fruits.
By time, the mode is built like this:
- breakfast at 8-9 o’clock,
- lunch at 12-13 o’clock,
- afternoon snack at 15-16,
- dinner at 18:30-19:30.
Meal times should be the same on weekdays and weekends.
It is desirable that the last meal was an hour and a half before bedtime.
Mode of physical activity and rest. Every day a child makes many movements, therefore, physical activity is understood not only as physical education, but also active games, sports, movement and relaxation. And here, too, there is a regime that ensures proper physical development.
- The peak of physical activity should be in the first half of the day.
- Weekly physical activity for children 5-7 years old is 6-8 hours per week, according to SanPiN.
- Mandatory morning exercises.
- Physical education classes in a preschool institution – 3 times a week: children 5 years old – 25 minutes, children 6-7 years old – 30 minutes.
- Outdoor active games for a walk (in bad weather, they are replaced by a full-fledged set of exercises indoors).
- Physical education minutes between mental activities.
- Gymnastics after daytime sleep.
- Moderately active games on the second walk.
Moderate physical activity should be observed immediately before breakfast, before mental activities and in the evening before bedtime.
Sleep mode. Proper sleep schedule helps to restore the mental and physical strength of the baby, spent on the active part of his day. Not only his psycho-emotional state, but also his physical health depends on how the child’s sleep is organized. Healthy sleep is a strong immune system. And now in order.
- Sleep duration for preschoolers: 5-6 years – 12 hours, 7 years – 10-11 hours. But much is individual – depending on temperament and loads, the required time for sleep may increase.
- Morning awakening should occur at 7:00-8:00, it depends on biorhythms and family habits, but you should not wake up later.
- Daytime sleep in children aged 5-6 lasts 1-1.5 hours. At 7 years old, the baby may refuse to sleep, but active children need about 1 hour of sleep.
- Evening bedtime depends on the presence of additional physical or emotional stress. It is recommended that children aged 5-6 go to bed at 20:30 – 21:00. At 7 years old, it is possible to shift the time to fall asleep by half an hour.
Mode of employment (mental activity) . Both kindergarteners and children who do not attend kindergarten are not deprived of developmental activities at preschool age. But like any other activity, the time and number of classes must be properly distributed and systematized. In other words, the home regimen should not differ much from the regimen of preschool institutions. The organization of classes in the general mode of the day is as follows:
In the morning after breakfast – two or three multidirectional classes. Duration of classes according to age: 4-5 years old – 20-25 minutes per event; 6-7 years – 30-35 minutes.
If the walk is canceled, then you can add another creative activity or educational game.
Approximate daily routine of a preschooler
7:00-8:00 – morning rise
7:30-8:30 – hygiene procedures, gymnastics
8:00-8:30 – breakfast
9:00 -10:30 – developmental classes
10:45 -12:15 – walk
12:30 -13:00 – lunch
13:00 -13:30 – start of daytime sleep (until 15:00 – 15:30)
15:30 – 16:00 – afternoon tea
16:30 -18:00 – walk with active games
18:30-19:00 – dinner
19:00-20:30 – independent games and activities
20:30-21:00 – laying down for a night’s sleep
When the baby can’t sleep
For compliance with the regimen, the schedule of children’s sleep is of great importance. Many parents are faced with the problem of falling asleep late and, as a result, difficult morning awakening. This significantly distracts from the execution of the regime. How can you help your child and yourself in such a situation? Try to fulfill a number of simple conditions.
- before going to bed a minimum of mobile active activities;
- soft light and absence of extraneous sounds half an hour before the baby goes to bed;
- a ritual that you come up with and observe: a song or a certain book of poetry, or one special tale – the main thing is that this is repeated every evening;
- a warm shower or bath for 5-7 minutes will help the baby fall asleep easier.
- 10-15 minutes before waking up, slightly open the curtains and the door;
- turn on soft music;
- come up with a ritual to wake up: a nursery rhyme or a short rhyme along with stroking or kissing will help the baby get up in a good mood;
- motivate your child to wake up 10 minutes earlier in order to have time to watch the morning cartoon.
In conclusion, I would like to remind parents that when organizing a regimen, it is necessary to take into account the individuality of the child, the presence of additional emotional or physical stress, as well as the season outside the window and the state of the baby’s immunity. All these factors can affect the balance of walks and activities at home, as well as the overall duration of sleep.

For a schoolchild, a properly built routine is a necessity. It helps to plan your days, adjust the work of the body and even reduce stress. Do not think that the schedule will drive the baby into certain limits, depriving him of the freedom of choice. Spontaneity is great, but it should be dosed and not affect the learning process and life in general. Absolutely all kindergartens and schools work according to a certain routine, to which the student adapts over time. You can also just build his usual daily routine. What is its use?
- Improving the functioning of the body. Having taught a child to wake up at the same time, his body will start the work of the brain, intestines, and the musculoskeletal system in advance. This allows you to feel rested and start a new day without much difficulty. Also, when eating on a schedule, a person will begin to produce gastric juice during these hours, the intestines will digest heavy meals easier and faster.
- Lesson planning. A common problem for children is the lack of hours for all the desired activities. So after homework there may not be time for games, or attending circles forces you to prepare for school until late. By making a clear schedule, the child will know what hours he can spend on his leisure. It will be easier for him to navigate in time.
- Stress reduction . Stress at school age is usually caused by spontaneous situations for which the child was not ready. When life is busy and at a fast pace, a person is not able to remember everything that is required of him in a day. From this, he grabs for everything at once. As a result, we get a poorly learned lesson, being late for classes, and poor sleep. All this is the cause of stress, which can be avoided with the help of planning.
Abrupt transition to the mode is a problematic task, so do not be surprised if the child refuses it at first. In this case, you need to explain why the daily routine will make his life easier. The best option would be to show this with your own example.
It is necessary to form a routine, taking into account the physiological characteristics of a person. With reduced immunity or excessive activity, the baby can wake up and eat for a long time. This extra time must be taken into account so that after that you do not have to do everything in a hurry. Leisure is also important: visiting circles, drawing at home or reading. All this must be clearly planned by the hour and only after that adjust the schedule. To simplify, we have compiled a rough plan of how a student’s schedule should look like. Adjust it depending on the time and characteristics of the child.
|7:00 – 7:20||exercising and showering|
|7:20 – 7:50||first breakfast, collection for school|
|7:50 – 8:20|| the way from home to school (adjust the time for yourself
depending on distance from home to school)
|8:30 am – 11:00 am||lessons at school|
|11:00 – 11:15||second breakfast at school or lunch box|
|11:15 – 12:30||lessons at school|
|12:30 – 13:00||way from school to home|
|13:00 – 13:30||lunch, preparation for rest|
|13:30 – 15:00||free time or sleep|
|15:00 – 15:15||afternoon tea|
|15:15 – 16:30||doing homework|
|16:30 – 17:00||games, cartoons or club gathering|
|17:00 – 19:00||hobbies or attending a circle|
|19:00 – 20:00||air walk|
|20:00 – 20:30||dinner|
|20:30 – 21:10||leisure time with parents, passive games, watching a movie|
|21:10 -21:30||water procedures|
If you think a student will forget what to do and when without you being reminded, get smart and creative with your schedule.
