When you’re planning a Literature or Informational Text based unit of study, you want to keep track of what standards you’ve selected to use in your lessons as you brainstorm and plan. But where do you record your ideas for teaching those standards? The Common Core Unit Planning Templates have just what you need! They include all the 4th Grade ELA standards, and they also provide a blank space for jotting down notes and ideas opposite each standard. In the spaces provided, you can record your creative ideas for lessons and activities, supplemental resources, a list of vocabulary related to the unit of study, and more!
When you use the templates in your planning, you have a place to highlight the standards you want to teach, and on the same document you can record your ideas for lessons and activities without having to write them on a separate sheet of paper. When you’ve finished, it’s all right there together on one sheet. You don't have to juggle random sheets of paper or run the risk of losing your ideas anymore!
You can use all 8 templates to plan a thorough unit of study, or you can opt to use single templates if you only want to focus on a particular strand.
The templates are straightforward and easy to use. They will help keep you organized and on top of the standards!
Standards Templates Include:
*Reading: Informational Text
*Reading: Foundational Skills
*Writing (2 pages)
*Speaking and Listening
*Language (2 pages)
