The Year at a Glance
A scope and sequence is a map of the school year,
detailing the plan of when you will teach each and every standard.
It keeps all the teachers on the same pace.
It sets a guide for assessing.
It also ensures you cover all required information in an organized fashion.
Essentially it is a huge time saving tool every teacher should have.
Who Creates a Scope and Sequence?
Ideally, you and your team should play a role in creating a scope and sequence for yourselves.
It is a fluid map that should be altered and changed around as needed.
I recommend making notes on the map so you can improve upon it year after year.
What Does Your Year at a Glance Look Like?
Many of you have asked me for my scope and sequence.
Since I am teaching at a new school this year,
there are some changes from things I have done in the past.
I will gladly share it with you this work in progress.
I have inserted the unit I have created so you can see at a glance what materials I use and WHEN I use them.
This also helps me to see what units I need to create activities for since I have tons of open holes.
My county has issued a faster paced phonics instruction. I had to redo my pacing guide to show this. You can grab this NEW updated guide with two letters a week here. Some people ask why I don’t do a letter a day. Simple: I always use data to drive my instruction. I always have more letters introduced and on my blending board based on student data than I have taught. BUT once we cover a letter, we do not have time to go back to it. So I cover a letter ONCE, for a few days, then move on. I continue to spiral and RTI, but I do not reteach a letter whole group.
