Note: These lesson plans have been updated and include all subjects. ELA and Math continue to use CCSS, Science now has GPS Science Standards, and Social Studies uses GA GPS standards since SS will not be changing soon. The SS standards do not say GPS and some specific wording has been taken out to insure that the standards are general for any state. Each subject has a different color to help for easier recognition. Please view this youtube video for more information. http://youtu.be/pf3ZWxvtlbc
The difference between TKES and the regular lesson plan templates is that some states are using TKES as their evaluation system so if your state is not then the regular will work fine. If you already purchased feel free to download the updated version from your account.
Why waste hours copying and pasting standards and activities into your lesson plan template. Do you get stuck when you are trying to come up with different openings or closings? Do you for forget to include important pieces? Cut your independent or collaborative planning time down in half. This weekly lesson plan template provides alphabetized drops down menus in every area: CCSS Standards, Technology, Differentiation, Assessments, Openings, Work Sessions, Share Times, Closings, and a daily grouping schedule. Click on the drop down menu, make your selection, and if needed, type in any other information below the selection. In the work session there are general activities or centers that you can choose from. Lesson Plans are now just a click away!
This version is for Mac specifically in an Excel format. If you are not running the full Mac excel compatibility version, the windows may still not be visible. Some use a modified version of Microsoft software called pages, etc. That version is not a complete program and does not run active x (the dropdowns). This problem can be fixed by upgrading through the Microsoft 360 site for Mac.
Please remember to enable edit when you first open (you will be prompted at the top of the page or the page will be jumbled and drop downs will when not work when opening. This will only happen the first time.
