Have you ever stepped into a classroom and felt like the teacher was using “Lesson Plan Dartboard” as his/her framework for delivering instruction? I know I have. It’s not a pretty sight and it’s not conducive to learning. A well-planned lesson plan will set the mood for instruction, help your students know what you expect them to learn, AND put your mind at ease should an administrator (or parent) walk into your classroom unannounced! 🙂
During my K-12 teaching career, I spent countless hours surfing the web in search of perfect lesson plans. There never really is the ‘Perfect’ lesson plan because each class (and every student who sits in your class) is different. For a lesson plan to be truly effective, it must take into consideration the culture and climate of your class; the uniqueness of your students; and the distinctiveness of you and your teaching nature. However, lesson plans abound on the Web; even the worst lesson plan can provide you with a framework to start with and then improve it.
I have been teaching for over 20 years. If I told you just how long, you’d figure out my age … Which NO student EVER in ANY of my classes were ever able to figure out. … I’d like to keep it that way 🙂 I have found lesson plans galore and I have created lesson plans galore. Within these pages you will find lesson plans that I have created over the years — I have a vast amount of them — They cover from Math to Science; Social Studies to Bible; and of course, as a literacy specialist, Reading. I hope you will find them to be ‘good’ lessons and not ‘ill-prepared’ ones — I give you license to tweak them as you see fit.
If you have a lesson plan you would like to share, please feel free to share it!
