This resource is to help create plans for the first month of school with some examples tailored toward speficifc third grade curriculum. However, it can be tailored to meet your grade level needs with many general plans. Specifically I use Daily 5, CAFE, NYS Modules, and MATH workshop, Words Their Way. I have updated this outline each week to reflect realistic expectations of what you can accomplish at the beginning of the school year to help set up classroom procedures. It includes a sample schedule, weekly plan, hyperlinks to math warm-ups, and specific activities for ELA and Math blocks.
It also outlines the sight words/vocabulary I use for the entire year as well as CAFE strategies and workshop activities.
Below are the links to some of the resources I use in my classroom during the first 5 weeks. Many of the links lead to resources I use throughout the year.
