I created some one page lesson planners to help me get a little more organized. I like these to plan for one day lessons. They are straight to the point. I also added drop down menus of the standards. I feel like I am constantly referring online or in my binder to look up standards. This will save some time and make it easy.
It's amazing to see what is important to students. This project has helped them synthesize their ideas by using different strategies. There are some amazing ideas. Check it out!
I also had them create a shopping list of items they need to create their art. I went shopping for the students that needed some unique items.
Let the 2016-2017 school year planning begin! Planning has changed quite a bit for me this year. I am just teaching k-5 and technology this year. I have realized that I am going to have more time with my students this year. My calendar looks pretty amazing!
Along with planning curriculum, comes setting goals for the year. I tend to give myself more than I can handle. I already have been working on most of these. It's just continuing and improving them.
