Do you spend your nights and weekends working on your lesson plans? I know I used to. I’d spend Sundays “with” my family. Really, I was in their presence, but I was thinking about my classroom working on my computer while my family talked and visited each other. It sucked.
I had NO idea what books I should read to my students. There are so many books in the library and looking all over Pinterest and Google for great books to read with my students for read alouds and guided reading took forever.
I didn’t know how to engage my student with digital tools. I could do it pretty well with math, but I struggled to take learning with physical books and engage my students even more with digital tools in literacy.
I made lesson plans for over 500 books for K-5 and read countless more that didn’t make the cut. These plans hit all of the K-5 standards. They engage students with digital tools, and they are for classic and new books that you may not have even heard of yet! I’m still reading books, and constantly adding new plans because I’m just obsessed with picture books! That’s why…
I did this all with my lesson plan templates that I’ve made connected to the Common Core standards.
