Lesson Plans

I’ve been doing my lesson plans on two sheets with the whole week on one open page of the plan book, but it’s hard to get enough information in there.  So this last two weeks I’ve gone to a page per day.  I can get  a lot more in there and hopefully it will be easier for someone else to follow if need be.  One of the things I like doing, since I scan most workbook pages and keep them on my computer, is to incorporate various worksheet pages directly into my plans, I  build hyper links into the Word document that link all of those pages directly to the plans, at least the version that I keep on the laptop.  The printed plans don’t contain the links, at least that can be followed, but the electronic plans do, so it’s easy to print them out and run them off.  I’m also working on a seperate page that details the small group instruction for the week, but it still needs some work.

Here’s a sample day, I know it’s not perfect, and the formatting is a little off, but it’s a start, I need to work in the SWBAT (students will be able to) and stuff like that.  Good plans take forever. And I’m NOT saying or suggesting these are good.  I’m saying it in despair………
