Teacher Week 2014- When and What

Today I'm linking up a little late for the When and What posts for Teacher Week 2014!
We had our Meet the Teacher Night Thursday and family time last night!
This first part of my post is all about WHEN I teach each skill and our schedule.
Let's start with my year long curriculum map.
Some of the fonts are difficult to see, but you can click on any picture or here to head to my Google Drive and grab a copy. If you'd like an editable version for yourself, click here.
We use Go Math and Scholastic's Traits Writing Curriculum, so you'll see those mapped out accordingly. I did include the CCSS and the writing project with Mentor Texts for each week, so you'll have an idea of what I'll be teaching.
We also use this spelling curriculum from Teacher's Clubhouse.
For Reader's Workshop and Science, I have the topics/focus, but not the specific unit. I'll share some of my favorite units tomorrow.
Let's move on to our Daily Schedule!
And here is my lesson plan template for this year.

I'll be back for a Peek at my Week on Sunday with my lesson plans for the first week of school!

 Movin' on to WHAT I like to teach!
My heart lies with Literacy!
I have such a passion for reading and teaching the kids how to learn to read, and in turn read to learn.
Here are a few of my favorite NEW products I just purchased at the B2S sale!
I can't wait to use these first two products when introducing the Daily 5.

I was also THRILLED to find another new favorite (new to me) TpT seller!
I see many more purchases in my future from Michael at The Thinker Builder.
