This school year we had to switch our schedule around. We receive students from about 5 different high schools. Four of them are on block schedule. But one of them decided to switch to periods as a “pilot program” (as if you really need a pilot program when the district has already done it previously and when half the nation is on periods as well). Because we have to serve students from all the high schools, we have to have periods and blocks. So we are divided into 7 periods + lunch / character ed and 4 blocks. 1st & 2nd period = 1st block, 3rd & 4th period = 2nd block, 5th & lunch = 3rd block, 6th & 7th period = 4th block. Additionally, I had all new standards for all my subjects (5 preps). This has been a very trying year for me. I had created a MS Word document for 4 blocks that I used prior to this year. But I couldn’t use it for 5 preps this year. I really didn’t have anything & I was growing frustrated. I don’t like to use just paper copies. I prefer to create my weekly planner digitally & then print it out and then make modifications as needed.
This last weekend I finally managed to create a 5 subject weekly planner on one sheet of paper. It does not have much room to write things, but can be used fine digitally. I offer it here for you if you should need one & like mine.
