Lesson Planning Madness

Well, I only have two school days left of maternity leave, and today I spent alllll day working on my lesson plans for next week.  I pretty much have it all finished, but I need something on teaching comparative/superlative adverbs.  Funny because I don't remember teaching that last year... oops, hopefully it's just my bad memory..  We are still getting more familiar with our new Common Core benchmarks.  Working on my plans all day has me wondering what is required at other schools.  I know that at my school we all have different ways of creating and writing my plans, but we have to meet certain criteria for each lesson (objective, anticipatory set, procedure, assessment/closure).  We also have to integrate technology and listening skills.  I was going to attach my lesson plans for next week for yall to see, but I can't figure out how to do that!! Any advice??  I'm really interested in seeing other plans, too.     And since I am a newbie.. I don't know if this is even possible.  Thanks for any feedback!!!!!

New to This!

Okay, so this is my very first post ever!! I am soo thankful that my friend Brittany set up my blog and made it super cute! I knew I had to start a blog once I saw hers.  I have been messing around with the whole teacherspayteachers website while I have been on maternity leave (by the way, I have the cutest baby boy ever!! He's six weeks old today!).  I always see the best ideas on other blogs so what a great way to share what I am doing in my class, as well!! Can't wait to explore blogging and learn new things!
