In my school, k, 1, 2 all meet twice a week for 45 minutes per period.
3,4,5 meet once a week for 90 minutes. I LOVE the double block periods
for 3rd and up. Kids get so much more done during those double block
classes. I wouldn't want to do them below 3rd grade though. Attention
spans for some 2nd graders just aren't long enough. The kids love the
double block times too. I consider myself very lucky to have that time
slot. I know that the double blocks somewhat drive the whole schedule
of LS. If kids are sick they miss two classes, though. I let my kids
who get behind stay at recess, come after school, or take work home to
finish and bring back.
