Today I am linking up with my good friend and fellow fourthie, Holly, at The Fourth Grade Flipper!
While planning in my new Erin Condren planner for the first time last week, I'll admit, I was afraid to write in it, but my amazing erasable gel pens made me feel more at ease. I am lucky enough to be able to plan with a few other teachers during our lunch period at the end of the week. More minds = better ideas! I love thinking of creative and fun activities for the students to participate in, but I'll admit it, I need to get better at thinking about what standards I should be focused on meeting. My idea was to make all of the CCSS on labels, print them, and stick them into my lesson plan book so I could easily see at a glance what standards I was meeting per week.
I set up the labels and started the tedious job...realizing just for Reading, Writing, and LA, I'd need about 45 pages, then I got lazy. I checked TpT and found some awesome teacher did all the work and is selling the product for $2.00. How could I not buy it!?
Now that I just saved a ton of time, I am even more excited to try this out. Here are my plans for the week:
I plan on sticking the labels under the far right column (when I print them out). This will be helpful to me and to anyone looking at my plans. Makes sense, right?
I will edit this post and add a new picture of my plans as soon as I get to school tomorrow and see my plan book! :)
Updated with a picture straight from my desk! ;)
I just picked two standards for now although we are honestly covering a ton this week!
