The book series provides a blank template for the teacher to fill in for each lesson. You don’t have to go to the trouble to look up the page numbers in the Reader’s Notebook, page number for the vocabulary cards in the text book, The AR test number for the weekly story, etc., I have already done it for you. It even includes a weekly reading log at the bottom of the chart to document 20 minutes of reading practice at home. Each Must Do-May Do chart is for a complete week/lesson. I run off the chart for each student in my class. As they work through the Must Do side during small group/connected practice time, they check items off they have completed. The May Do side of the chart consists of spelling practice, summarizing the weekly story, vocabulary practice, handwriting, etc.
Another great aspect of the chart is that it is a running dialogue of all our classwork and homework for the week, so if a student is absent he or she has this chart in their binder and never has to ask me for make-up work, or what he or she missed.
I hope you find this helpful. I love that I made these last year and have them saved to use this year. I hope they help you out as much as they do me. ENJOY!
