Every year I start with my big picture pacing guide.
This puppy has everything on it-my math, social studies, science, ELA, classroom management/social growth and holiday studies.
I've offered my pacing guide for you to use as a jumping off point when planning your year.
I've paced out the 5th grade Benchmark program, Ready Math (standards based, so it can be applied to most other math programs), social studies standards, STEMScopes (NGSS standards), social skills and holidays I want to teach and focus on. Everything is editable, so you can keep what you want and move around what you don't!
Enjoy, and good luck planning your year!
