Okay, I don't remember who it was but someone before mentioned a ton of things they put into their lesson plan book. I am putting my new one together now and trying to get extremely organized. I would love some ideas about what needs to go in it. So far I have put in dividers for DS's lessons, Dd's lessons, homeschool forms/info, and grades. I have also included a calendar, grading scale, theme list, curriculum outlines and course of study for dd and ds. I also keep an area for extra lesson plan forms, report forms, book lists, etc. Can you think of some other good things to include in here? Also, dd will be in 2nd this Fall and I'm going to make her a notebook as well to keep things in! I wanted to include things like assignment sheets, daily chore lists, possibly journals (writing/poetry, science) and then I run out of ideas. Can you think of anything else for her notebook? Most of her work is in workbooks so I won't be sectioning it off for subjects. Thanks for any ideas you might have! I love this part of teaching...getting organized and everything in order. It sure makes life easy when school is in session!!!
