Can I get an AMEN?
I managed to finish O-N-E week of lesson Plans for the new Journeys series that we adopted for the Fall. I thought I'd get a jump on planning and prepping materials. Goodness knows that beginning of the year can be absolutely overwhelming. I plan to make my days very structured and consistent. My kiddos thrive on what they know is coming next. So I planned this with them in mind. Monday, word wall activities, Tuesday HFW tic- tac- toe, Wednesday HFW Roll-Say-Keep, Thursday Cheering HFW, Friday assessment. I also have posters to support new terms. I got the Anchor Charts ready to go --- ok I put the Title together and found the items needs to sort (animals/people). I decided my kiddos need some serious following directions experiences so I plan to do a Friday writing (I have writer's workshop everyday.) and craft each week. Trying to tie it all together.
It's on sale for half price, $2.50. I'd love for someone using Journeys to give me their thoughts. If you use Journeys, leave a comment and I will pick one person to preview it for FREE!!
What series do you use? How do you fit it all in??
