things a third/fourth grade teacher thinks about-
including, but not limited to:
education, gifted & talented education, teaching, learning, motivation, expeditionary learning, literature, television, movies, art, photos, etc.
So, Ihuddles posted about making her own lesson plan book, and I messaged her all super jelly, and that sweetheart made me templates for first my first and second semester classes.
I took it to Office Max for binding, and it tuned into a huge headache.
Section 1 was full-month calendars. No problems with that.
Section 3 and 4 was semesters one and two respectively. But the first time they copied it, they screwed up the layout so it looked like Th-F, M-T-W when you opened the book.
Section 2 was fine when I dropped it off AND when I caught the mistake on the actual lesson planning, but when it went to pick it up today, it was totally out of order. What I had for section two was the standards for grades 9 and 11. I was so frustrated and didn’t trust them any longer, I took it home anyway, and they took some money off.
Also, you could tell their printer was running out of ink at the end of the book.
So, I got creative and pulled out the standards sections and stapled them to the dividers. I wasn’t going to worry too much about that since I’ll only use it for quick reference.
And I’m not going to be so prissy as to demand my lesson plan book be OMGPURFECKED because it’s going to be scribbled all over soon enough.
It is spiral bound, cardstock + laminate front and back covers, with solid color paper for section dividers, and with my crabbiness and their mistakes I only paid 5 bucks for it.
