Maya's Schedule

Here's a peek at Maya's regular day during fourth grade:

8:45-9:00    Arrive at school  (Children who eat breakfast at school and/or attend the on-site daycare arrive earlier.)

9:00-9:05    Opening and Announcements

9:05-9:50    Daily reviews

9:50-11:40   Reading  (Maya's favorite part of the day.)

11:40-12:00  Lunch  (Another favorite time for Maya--socializing.)

12:00-12:15  Recess  (Ditto on social time.)

12:15-1:00    Unit Studies  (Rotates through lessons on topics involving subjects such as science, social studies, and history.)

1:05-1:55      Specials  (Music-P.E.-Art-Computer in rotation, one per day.)

1:55-3:35      Math

3:38              Dismissal

She goes to the school library every Tuesday, though I didn't think to ask her when that fits into the daily schedule.

So far, the year is off to a positive start.

I am happy to hear the school year started well. That is a busy schedule but I am glad she has time for a social life :)

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
