My state has apopted the common core standards and along with that came a new reading series. We adopted Journeys by Houghton Miflin Harcourt. To prepare for all of the new this year I created lesson plans for each of the 30 lessons/stories.
I have used a chart format and used the teacher's guide as a guideline. My plans have a lot, some of which I am not able to get to with such a busy schedule but they are great to have.
I keep these in a seperate binder on my desk and in my regular plans I include a notation to see the attached plans.
