While reading my children, “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” this past week, it hit me! Teachers are SO much like this book! Let me share with you how!
If you give your class a pretest…
If you give your class a pretest, you are going to have to create a unit on those skills.
Once you create your unit, you are going to need to work on creating daily lesson plans.
When you have your daily lesson plans, you are going to have to work on differentiating your centers.
After you differentiate your centers, you are going to need to start planning your small group lessons and activities.
Once you have your small group plans ready, you are going to need to start teaching.
After you teach a few lessons, it is time for an informal assessment.
Using the data from you informal assessment, you are probably going to need to regroup your students based on this new data.
After you have your groups regrouped, you can take another look at your differentiated activities and rework your lesson plans.
Once you rework your lesson plans, your students are probably going to need a little remediation and practice on specific skills.
When preparing for additional practice for your students, you are probably going to go and shop on Teachers Pay Teachers.
After you have integrated and correlated your TPT purchases and pulled other resources to supplement your curriculum, you probably need to assess your students again.
After your new assessment, you can now regroup your students and dig deeper into their learning gaps.
Once you have filled in all their learning gaps it is time to give your students your post-test.
And chances are if you give a class a post-test, you are going to give them another pre-test.
