I’ve done long range plans a few different times over the years, and this the first time I am sharing them through my blog.
In the past, I’ve really felt that true learning happens in the process of doing your plans yourself. As a mentor, I’d rather teach you to fish, than to give you the fish…make sense? So, in an effort to encourage independent thought, I’m also offering my template so that you can create an alignment for yourself that works for your learners! 🙂 I’ve included some year at a glance pages so that you can see the progression I was taking through the year. My county gave us a basal text for reading, and I went through and aligned the science and social studies to the stories…but also to a developmentally appropriate progression for the year. When you are creating your own long range plans, this document might be helpful to you as you put together the themes you want to teach.
