My first grade team had a couple of days of curriculum development this week. We have been working SUPER hard on organizing and preparing our curriculum so that it is all in one place and in one folder.
We use Scott Foresman reading series and we organize all of our phonics, word work, writing, etc by the skills for the story each week.
We really wanted to be able to have ALL of our words and skills in one place and to be able to see everything at once. Our finished project is practically our entire lesson plans for the year! Yeah us!
Here's a few pics of our "organized mess".
We had about 4 of these horseshoe table covered with papers, folders, and page protectors. It took a long time but TOTALLY worth it in the end to have it done!
What are you working on this summer?
