Does Benchmark overwhelm you with all its components? It sure did for me. Then I made this visual component matrix and I was surprised how things made sense to me and how things were left out for the week.
This cheat sheet will help you get your lessons organized in so much less time. Each unit is on one page. It is divided by 3 weeks and color coded for each type of lesson:
Shared Reading, Extended Reading, Concepts About Print, Vocabulary, Leveled Readers, Reader's Theater, Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Decodable Readers, HFW,
Poetry Posters, Frieze Cards, and Sound Spelling Cards.
