Check out the preview, it isn't all cute and colorful like other people's products. This is because lesson plans aren't meant to be cutesy. In this product you will find daily lesson plans aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards and Lucy Calkins Units of Study. The lessons are broken into five daily lessons for the first four weeks at school. They are scripted and pretty well laid out for you to just open your plan book and roll with it. Read aloud books, standards, and higher order thinking questions are included. Save your planning period for making the cute bulletin boards, laminating student work and all the fun stuff that we all went into teaching for! You will find in the preview the first lesson to show you the format used and allow you to get a feel of what your buying. Enjoy, your plans are complete!
