As I was reflecting on some of my organizational and planning strategies today, I decided to set a goal for myself for next year. I spent SO much time this year not only planning, but typing lengthy lesson plan procedures. I understand that some of us are required to do this, but I am not required to do the amount of work that I did this year in that area. My administration requires the key components of a lesson plan but for me to type out my every move during a lesson is completely unnecessary. After reflecting on this topic, I decided to challenge myself to create a lesson plan template that I knew would accommodate my needs, yet keep my "wordy-ness" to a minimum! The template is completely editable since I know that we all have such different needs and I wanted to share it with you guys! Please click here to download this template for FREE! I also created a guided reading lesson plan template today, which you can find here . Please leave my store some feedback if you enjoy these products. Thanks for looking!!!
