Plan your planning time
Come with a plan Stan! Start with a plan to maximize what you can get done.
So many things to do… sometimes makes our heads spin! What to do first? Start with a plan and you’ll have more to show for it. Not all that different from the idea behind learning targets for our kiddos. You can aim for a goal if you have a clear target – in our case, the tasks that will most help us do our jobs. Plan. Organize. Instruct. Facilitate. Assess. You get the idea – the list goes on so come to your plan time with a plan and get the important stuff done!
Ready. Set. Go!
- Short plan time – one of those, I drop kids off then, blink. It’s time to pick them up again!
These plan times are stinkers because they’re gone so fast. But the time can still be helpful if you’re ready with a plan to accomplish short jobs.
- Like copying. Bring the masters with you when you’re walking the kids to music. That way, you’re spending your time doing a task that gets you ahead instead of doubling back to the classroom to grab what you need.
