As a teacher, having good planning documents is a necessity. These enable you to consider all parts of your lessons; such as the types of questions you may want to ask, listing the resources you will need as well as document the type of assessment to be gathered.
Over the years, I changed my daily planning document (also known as ‘Daily Work Pad’) on numerous occasions. I was always thinking about what more could be added to enhance its use.
If you are after another idea for your daily planning document then please feel free to use the below, ‘Daily workpad template’.
It is two pages in length (landscape). The first page is used for documenting your daily activities. There is a key at the bottom of the page that may help guide what you write in each section. The second page provides room to document any anecdotal/assessment notes. There is also room for notes on any focus students you may have, as well as room for daily evaluation notes.
I have included this template as a Word document so that you are able to edit, change and use it to suit your needs. This template is set at A4 size, but I used to enlarge this to A3.
How do you organise your daily planning? Do you have a template that you use?
