Documentation doesn’t have to be burdensome. In fact, in can be helpful. Use a format like the one above and below to guide you when you are planning your lessons. Instead of writing each standard number in your lesson plans, write the date of the lesson/name of lesson on the chart. Granted, you will teach many of these standards more than 4 times but, with this system you know that you’ve taught all of your standards at least 4 times. With a quick look, you can tell which lessons you haven’t taught yet or which ones you’ve only taught once. When planning your lessons, these are the standards to focus on.
This packet comes with editable charts and a PDF version of the chart. The colorful arrows shows sample text boxes with words. You can click on the blank boxes to begin typing in those.
You can also print off a copy of the charts with the PDF version. You can use this different ways. With older students, they can attach a copy of the chart in the front of their “D” books so they are responsible for their own documentation.
You can print copies of the chart on colorful paper. Use a different color each grading period. Keep these copies in your lesson plan book/binder to help with your planning.
