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:
Interactive Read Aloud, Shared Reading, Mentor Read Aloud, Extended Reading, Vocabulary, Spelling, Leveled Readers, Reader's Theater, Phonological Awareness, Decodable Texts, Phonics, and Sound-Spelling Cards.
