Getting Ready and Set to Teach

Having the summer off lends me plenty of time to ready myself for a new school year. Each year I aim to get myself more organized and structured with my planning. Planning in advance takes a lot of time initially, but saves time in the long run, since I rarely need to scramble at the last minute.

While I submit electronic plans to my principal, I use an Erin Condren Planner to organize and plan my thoughts before typing it into the computer. This will be my second year using an Erin Condren- and while it's a significant investment (at least for a planner), I find it to be completely worthwhile. I love the way it looks and feels, and writing it in makes me happy. It helps me to not view planning as a chore, which says a lot!

Erin Condren Teacher Planners

In an effort to further simplify planning this school year, I created an English Language Arts Scope and Sequence Chart for each unit. At a glance I can find the focus of my ELA instruction for the week (phonics, comprehension, writing/grammar). I tend to be an impulsive Teachers Pay Teachers shopper, and I know this will help me focus on what I need rather than what I want. Once I can get back into my classroom, I'm going to use it to finally organize my files (which may be a little completely out of control).


Treasures First Grade Scope and Sequence

This scope and sequence is aligned to Macmillan/McGraw-Hill's Treasures Reading Program, which is what my district uses. As of right now, I haven't created an editable version, but if anyone is interested, please let me know and I will see what I can do! Hope you find this as helpful as I do!
