3 life saving lesson planning templates with samples of each and how I use them!
I use the first template to plan whatever unit I am teaching next. This template allows me to plan the unit by both week and subject. I simply fill in which topics I want to teach which weeks.
I use the second template to plan each individual week in more detail. This template allows me to plan the week by both day of the week and subject. Since I already know what topic I want to teach each week, I simply fill in what activity I want to do each day for each subject.
I use the third template to plan gradual release of responsibility with each topic I teach. I simply fill in the name of the topic and then list how I might introduce the topic, what activities I might do as guided practice, what activities I might assign for individual practice, how I might assess learning, and what I could do to review the topic at a later date or reteach if necessary.
Each of the three templates comes in 6 colors (pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple) and a black and white option. Each is made using a standard font in order to appear correctly on any computer.
