This organizer is great for mapping out your year. At a glance you can see what you hope to cover in all content areas making it easier to integrate themes. This format also makes it easier to make sure you cover everything you hope to cover in a year.
The number of weeks in the school year is shown in the far left margin. This information includes the dates and in the parentheses below, shows how many teaching days do to holidays or grading/inservice days. This organizer is based on the school schedule for the Salem-Keizer school District in Salem, OR.
Each page represents a grading period. Pages should be printed using legal sized paper.
Some holidays have been included in the assessment column--green print.
Finally, I've included an example of what Writing might look like (for a 4th grade classroom)using a workshop model that uses mentor authors as a main component of writing instruction. If you are interested in the daily lesson plans that correspond with this organizer, please let me know.
