After this week, students will take final exams. Graduation is on the 12th (we are a Jewish school, so we don’t hold events on Fridays or Saturdays in order to avoid conflicting with Shabbat).
My schedule for next year is firming up, and believe it or not, I’m already looking forward to next year. I want to spend time this summer really planning for next year. What I want to do is take a look at the curriculum and at least get my units sketched out à la UbD. I want to make sure that my road map for the year is plotted. I did plot out the first month or so, and my lessons went great. I should have done more planning, but the craziness of the year set in and yadda, yadda, yadda, I didn’t keep it up.
Of course, I plan to make time for the final Harry Potter book and fifth Harry Potter movie, as well as genealogy research, but I usually find myself looking for stuff to do over the summer, and I may as well do some solid work on my lesson plans.
Do you plan over the summer at all?
