My Sunday Funday post for today is about how I organize my units. I have several huge binders, and each binder holds 3 units.
In the binder, everything is in page protectors. The units are held together by a binder clip. The first page protector has my unit plan. My unit plans have the objectives covered on the first page, then the rest of the pages are broken down into individual lessons with objectives, activities I have planned, opportunities for reteaching or extension, and how I am assessing the lesson. If you want my unit plan template, just let me know!
After the unit plan, the next page protector has the extension activies (I always have these on one of my bulletin boards for kids to work on when they are finished with their regular work or to take home and work on). Then each lesson or activity has its own page protector. The master copies and answer keys to everything are also in there.
The last page protector has the unit test.
I also make notes on post its after I do a lesson and note if the lesson went well or what changes I would make for next time.
