My Lesson Plan Template


Hi Everyone,
   I'm trying to relax and enjoy me last 2 days of vacation before I go back to school. Yesterday I busted out a month worth of lesson plans, so I am feeling pretty organized on that front. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to during the break due to a pesky little flu bug that knocked me on my butt for a week.
I wanted to share with you my lesson plan template that I have used for the past 2 years. I've tried many different templates over the years, ones that I have purchased, and ones that I have created.  This template has seemed to work the best for me to view things at a glance, and to also be able to view the whole week as my binder is laid open on my desk. Click on the link at the bottom of the page for the free template.
Here is an example one of my lesson plans:

I work in a Catholic School, and we are required to have our Students Learning Expectations on our lesson plans, so those are the red letters and numbers you see on the side.  This could easily be changed to common core or state standards.  I also like to add in pictures from pinterest or other sources for the art projects that I will be doing with the kids for the week,  This gives me a helpful reminder of what the project should look like.

My husband and I decided to go on a hike today with some of our friends. Living in San Diego, there are many wonderful trails to choose from. We decided to do the Iron Mointain hike, which we had done once before. I thought that I was over my recent sickness, but half way through the hike the mucus started building up in my chest and I could not breath! Being the horribly stubborn person I am though, I didn't want to admit defeat, so I trudged my butt up the rest of the mountain, but with a lot more stops than I would have liked.

On the way back, my shoes betrayed me, and I ate it! I know running shoes are not for hiking, but I've never had a problem with them before. I stepped onto a rock, and my foot slid forward out from under me and I landed hard on my derrière. My elbow came down hard and scrapped the treacherous rock as well. I sat there for a second trying to ascertain my injuries, trying not to cry, desperately searching for my pride. I am getting too old to fall! I'm bruised up, and my butt is in constant pain, but I'm lucky there is so much padding back there that I was not seriously injured. 

Next up on my list: buy some actual hiking shoes that have some grip to them! Here's a picture of us at the end of the hike, happy that it is over : )
