Anyhoo..... our plan tomorrow is to map out our minilessons for writing and maybe, just maybe create a few things to go along with them. We are super excited because we mapped out all the books we are going to use this year AND collected several from our book room already. We can't wait to share with you what we're doing, but you'll have to wait... just a little.bit.longer. However, we WILL share with you this writing freebie that we are going to use to help us plan! Let us know if you have any suggestions, we're always looking for great ideas!!!!
We decided to go with Units of Study instead of the month at the top because we look at our writing units by weeks, not the months when they are being completed. For example, we have a pattern book writing unit that will start in Mid September and end in the 2nd week of October. Then, we will pick up our next unit. We also needed to get better at utilizing the word wall in my room, so we have looked at the fry list (word cards to be coming soon!) and chose K words that we will add to our wall. We also feel it's important to be intentional with our minilessons and Em found an awesome resource we will be using along with LOTS of other books she has tabbed for us.
We are going to have SO.MUCH.FUN! Seriously! I can't wait!
Happy planning my friends with Teacher Workaholicitis!
