Education Journey had a post on lesson plan organization. I was impressed with her and her dedication to keep such great tabs on what she does so as not to recreate the wheel each year. I would like to start doing this as I go along this year. http://ashleigh-educationjourney.blogspot.com/2011/07/lesson-plans.html
This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer.
