Our year is divided into a different Habitat theme each month. We are starting with the pond habitat which will be so fun! I am in charge of science and art small groups, planning the academic free centers, and doing a total revamp of our classroom library!
So in order to get started with my planning, I had to make my new teacher binder for the year. I just love my new cover for the year! I used backgrounds that I got free from Melstampz, aren't they so cute?!?!?
This is my weekly planner. I have a spot to jot down plans for morning meeting, what I will be teaching in small groups, and a spot for any random notes such as special events that day, any lead teaching notes, etc.
Then I made a monthly planning sheet. A place to jot down notes for the next month's small group plans and holidays and events as well as birthdays. Most importantly here, I have a place to plan my centers for the month!
Since this is so specific to my needs, I didn't add a link for you to download and use, but if you think this would be great for your use, please comment with your email and I can send you a copy!
Hope everyone's planning is going well... it's getting close!
