I've already talked about how I do my long-term mapping for ELA and Math, this will be how I do it on a daily basis.
Last year, I made a guide to help me with my process.
|The left is this year's, and on the right is last year's.|
Mandy's Tips for Teachers-I liked her Facebook page and got them for free (although I don't know if she stills has them-it was a few years ago!).
I also added some things throughout the year-you can see my Science map and thinking routines taped onto some covers.
This year, I refined and added in some things, to make it more accessible for me.
I also added a table of contents for I can easily see what each section is (and I'll be adding tabs to it for easy flippage :)
I spent some time refining my ELA map,
|A little more detailed, plus some CCSS added in!|
as well as completely redoing my Math map (it was basically just a pacing guide before, know it has the skills taught in each lesson, as well as common core alignment as I saw it reflected in the lessons.)
When I go to do my planning, I grab this guide, and am pretty much able to plan away. I don't need to lug my ginormous math teacher editions, or search through all my resources, because I have it in this handy-dandy guide.
I had it bound at Staples for under $4, and printed everything at home (I printed the covers on cardstock, and laminated them at school).
That's my planning guide! It may be a lot of initial outlay of time, to organize it all, but it saves me an equal amount of time throughout the school year (which is a much needed necessity!)
