Lesson planning is kicking my butt. I was inspired by Jessica Meacham’s site to start doing my lesson plans on computer, and decided to use Google Docs so I could access them at home or at work. Then I learned that I didn’t have the first idea how to make a spreadsheet into a workable weekly lesson plan.
So I googled it. HA! That totally didn’t work. I googled “lesson plan templates” lots of different ways, and googled “how to make a google docs spreadsheet” and an hour later I still had bupkis. One problem is that I am using my MacBook, and I’ve only got Pages on it, so I can’t open any Word documents. But the main problem is that I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.
I emailed Miss Mellow for help; she has a nice template on her computer for her lesson planning; perhaps she can guide me out of the darkness.
Meanwhile, I’ve got laundry to do and TONS of stuff to get organized in my office (not to mention starting the dreaded signing my kids up for camps process). And hardly anything written in my lesson plan.
