Lesson Plans... (01/06/14)

OMG it should NOT be this hard to type up my lesson plans and post them for you all. Geez Louise! I know several bloggers do this and I wanted to join in the fun, but damn.

OK here is the deal, I teach MULTIPLE grade levels and by that I mean I teach two Kinder ELL groups, one First grade ELL group and one multi-grade (3-5) Math ELL group. Now I LOVE being an ELL teacher. I adore that even when I hate my schedule, which I don't, but even when I dislike it that my day is broken up. However, this makes for a TON of planning. Which isn't too bad, cause I do enjoy planning. I wouldn't be able to create lesson plan templates for others, if I didn't enjoy some part of it. However, it is tedious and time consuming. So with that said I've only been able to finish one set of lesson plans. I always start with my Kinder groups, because they are my largest group and take the longest to plan for. So those are the plans I will post for you all tonight.

With all that said! Just to remind you I teach reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Unlike the format I love, two pages side by side, for my own plans I decided I would do a 1 page and then all the resources just spilled onto pg 2. So I print front and back. Then separate my binder by grade level.

Now that Downton is back, I am throughly distracted, I will work well into the night on my other two groups. Especially since I just recently learn I will have a "Too cold to go into school." day tomorrow, so I will probably post those plans for you all then.

Don't forget you have a few more hours to grab a pre-made lesson plan from A Teacher's Plan.
As my way of wishing you a happy new year, all pre-made lesson plan templates are 10% off.
