Do you always run out of time at the end of the school year? I use this scope and sequence planning page to plan out each month of instruction before the school year starts. I think about the duration of units through the year and the order of which I need to each items! I also think about the basic major strategies I need to teach and plug that into the calendar. It helps me to have an overview of my year, even though many things will change it is a time saver!
