Get Organized For The Year!

Hey Everyone! I'm SOOOOO excited to share with you all my NEWEST organizational LIFESAVER... Seriously, it's jam-packed FULL of organizational goodies that will help you keep track of your curriculum, units, small groups, student data... ALL OF IT!

We as teachers have soooo many things to remember. I don' know about you, but I can't count the number of times I've found a neat idea and said, "I'll remember that for when it comes time to teach ____!"

And then... I forget. The unit is over. I forgot about that awesome idea. FAIL.
I decided that I needed a few quick, one-page templates to write down my thoughts, ideas, anchor charts, plans for assessment, etc for my units. That's why I decided to create the Curriculum Organizer!

There are SO many great templates in here that I'm going to take you through a blog post FULL of pictures (it's better than my ramblings anyway!) I should also mention-- ALL templates are available in an EDITABLE PowerPoint file, too!

First up... Let's plan the YEAR AT A GLANCE starting with LONG RANGE PLANS!
On a quick, two-page spread, you can plan your year and find your units at a quick glance in ALL subject areas!
Use the one-page monthly "At A Glance" templates to dive into a little more detail about what you're teaching in ALL  subject areas.

When you're finally ready to begin your next unit, use these one-page templates to help you remember all of your fantastic ideas (or those ideas you stole from someone else), write down your anchor chart plans, objectives, ideas... I could go on!
For those of you that like to get really detailed, use these WEEKLY SNAPSHOTS to show a quick plan for your week.
I've included small group plans, conference notes, checklists, and SO MUCH MORE for reading, writing, and math! 

I divided my binder up into FIVE sections: Year At A Glance, Student Data, Reading Organizer, Writing Organizer, & Math Organizer. (I couldn't fit all of the covers/sections in one picture, but you get the idea.)
Here's a peek at the READING organizer (not all templates shown).

Happy Organizing!
