How Do You Plan & Clipart Giveaways


Today I am linking up with Jessica Stanford over at Mrs. Standford's Class for an Erin Condren giveaway!! And I am so excited I've eyed some of Erin Condren's products for a while now but never bought any so maybe this will be my chance to finally purchase something!!

So today's linky is all about how do you plan? I do all my plans on the computer because I like to have them backed up from year to year or in case something happens. Usually I then print them and put them in a lesson plan binder but this year I am going to try just pulling them up on the computer again. When it comes to actually doing plans this year I am working with two different teams. I am working with all of the first grade teachers across the district (or at least most of us) to plan the actual curriculum and then I am working with 1st - 3rd in my building to plan the implementation of Daily 5 in reading and math. So once I get everything I am doing in a set routine then I will create a template on the computer and each week sit down and plug in the activities, standards, and objectives for the week.

I also wanted to let you know there is this great giveaway going on!


I could really use some great clip art to get me motivated this year!! But head on over and get registered!
Now I'm off to do more organization!


  1. I found you through the Planning Linky! I plan the same way it sounds like. I do print out my lessons just in case a sub has to take over.
    Love your blog design. ;) I hope you'll visit my blog!
