Need some organization in your Language Arts Class? This will be the your new best friend!
My first year teaching, I noticed that my middle school students were really struggling with organization and scheduling. My students were always forgetting due dates and test days. Their grades were suffering and they were discouraged. I developed a weekly mnemonic to help my students keep track of weekly assignments and tests, as well as give them structure that they could rely on.
The results were more than I had hoped for. Not only were my students much more successful at keeping track of assignments and test days, the daily frenzy to ask “what are we doing today?” completely vanished. Rather than getting bored with a set-system, I noticed that my students were more relaxed and confident with a reliable, consistent schedule. And my students weren’t the only ones who benefited. My students’ parents were constantly thanking me for having set in place a reliable schedule that they could even keep track of and help keep their kids accountable!
Not only were my students and parents happier, I benefited too! I quickly fell in love with having a set schedule for every day of the week. Lesson plans fell into place so much easier, and sub-plans were a no-brainer. When should I have the test? Answered. When should I assign the next writing prompt? Answered. When should I review with my kids? Answered. The NOT2cool4school LA Weekly Schedule System is a fun organizational tool that will help you, your students, and their parents stay on track all year long!
Enjoy a more stress-free classroom with the consistency of the LA Weekly Schedule System!
