This Week’s Lesson Plans

Awhile back, I had a request to see what a typical page in my lesson plan book looked like, how I get everything in in one day or in a week.  I’ve completed my plans for this week (December 15th-18th, 2008) and I’m going to post them below.  They are very general, as this week is kind of a crazy one with a All School Holiday Sing/Convocation, Winter Party, All School Volley Ball Game, Polar Express, and anything else that is happening that I forgot to add.  I’m going to start saving all my plans on the computer, just for sanity’s sake next year and the following years–it will be easier to make updates that way! 🙂  Let me know if you have any questions–there are some abbreviations listed that mean something to me, but may not to you! 🙂


Also, our lunch time was switched from 10:40 to 10:30 so my schedule changed a bit from the one I posted at the beginning of the summer/school year.  I had to move Writer’s Workshop to the afternoon-right after recess/lunch, so you will see that change, but it did buy me 10 more minutes for Literacy Work Stations! 🙂

    Hi Kristen,
    I’m new at this but What is a blogroll? and what is the best way to use your site? You have great ideas!

      Hi Kelley,
      The blogroll is a listing of other peoples sites that you want to display on your site. When I find a site that helps me, I post them on my site so others can use them too.

      The best way to use my site is searching by month. I try to think about a month in advance, so for April, I would look under my April 2009 postings or if you’re all planned for April, check out May!

  2. Im starting to help my 4 yrs old granddaughter with homework before she starts kindergarten, can you show my a couple of your monthly homework sheets that you give to your kindergarters that I can do nightly with her? She is very advance for a 4 yr. old and probably could also do pre-1st grade work as well.


  3. Good morning Kristen,
    I received your reply to my question about monthly homework sheets, my question is, I seen on your site that you make up a monthly homework calendar and you have the children to different assignments nightly for example on Sept. 1st you have the children “practicing saying their address and phone number out loud five times”, on Sept. 2nd you have the children “practicing saying the months of the year in order, etc., this is something that I was requesting a copy of for the school yer. Some of the assignments are to advance or not advance enought and I’m trying to get more homework assignments for at least a month.

    Also, if you know another site that has monthly homework calendars that i could get more examples please forward me those sites as well.

    This is for a 4 year old who will be entering kindergarten in Sept. 2011

      Hi Monique,
      I am in the process of re-doing all my homework packets and haven’t gotten the first one done yet. When I do, I hope to start posting all of them for everyone to share!
      Kristen 🙂
