The foundation of any great planning is a detailed, thorough and differentiated long term plan - and that's what this is - a ready-to-go year-long plan for both reading and math. You will be able to take this plan and plan your weekly plans IMMEDIATELY and with success!
The plans are backward planning or Understanding By Design (UbD) aligned. They include Common Core Standards and are aligned with NWEA's Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test and Learning Continuum. I've used this long term plan for years and have fine-tuned it thoroughly. Using this plan, 90% of my students have met their end-of-year personal growth goals on NWEA's MAP assessment - paired with strong assessment, lesson plans and execution, a great long term plan works!
You might want to make changes to my baseline plans, and that's why this product is EDITABLE! There are .PDF files that can be printed and used, but I've also provided the editable files so you can take what you love from the plans and adjust what works best at your school!
This product contains the following pieces for math AND reading:
- Year-long pacing
- Common Core Standards
- Week-by-week learning targets ("I Can" statements) - differentiated into base level goals and extensions goals
- Key knowledge and skills for each unit
- Essential questions for each unit
- Key points for each unit
- Spiral review skills for each unit in math
- Mentor text suggestions for each unit in reading
Additionally - there are student trackers for each unit, using the "I Can" statements from each unit. They are an excellent way to help students self-assess, set goals and maintain motivation!
This is a long term or year-long plan for second grade - but the depth and breadth of the plan itself could serve as inspiration for second OR third grade.
** Please note: if using the editable files, you will need to install Kimberly Geswein's "KG Cold Coffee" font if you want the fonts to match. ***
