As speech-language pathologists and special educators, we are pros at implementing IEP goals, documenting sessions, and taking detailed data. It's our accountability! Of course, we plan for our small groups much like teachers plan for their classes. However, we have not always created written plans like classroom teachers do. IEP goals drive our instruction. Still, with the push to show evidence of planning and collaboration, I created this simple form.

Even though I always documented sessions on my data/tally sheets, as SLPs in the school system, it's not uncommon to be asked to produce a "lesson plan." I created this easy-to-use lesson plan template to meet that need. Although I was skeptical about the need, I found this extremely helpful to me so I thought I would share.

How I use this form:

Each Friday I plan my activities for the following week for each group. I had done this for 20 years (in my head) but had never actually put it in writing on a designated form. On Friday, I would type my activities in the 1-page form. On Monday morning I was REALLY GLAD I did that because all the thinking had been done the following week and was waiting for me on manic Monday. :)

I posted it near my therapy table and followed it all week. As an added bonus, administrators were easily able to see evidence of my planning.

I'm hoping you'll find it as useful as I did.

OH, and I used the notes blocks at the bottom to pencil in meetings and collaboration with teachers. It felt good to "give myself credit" for all the productive things I did all week and have it written in black and white! I kept the the messy, scribbled on lesson plan each week and put them all in a binder. This binder was available to adminstrators during my observations as well.

Having my "last year's" lesson plans all in one place made planning the following school year a snap because I could look back and see, for instance, what I did the week of Christmas.

It's all about working smarter, not harder!

Type your name on top, circle the month and days that apply each week, and type a brief description of your brilliant plans for each group on the each day of the week. The font will adjust in size to fit the box.

Mine looked something like this:


preschool and K language groups: All About School interactive books & school dot art

Articulation Groups K-2: Ocean Dot Art and Ocean homework pages

Language Group 1-2: EET describing fish from Ocean Fun Pack and goldfish snack.

Articulation Group grade 4: Get to Know you cards for carryover
