How many times do you read a piece of text, be it a poem, book, article, song lyrics, and think about how it can be utilized to teach concepts in literacy to your students? I have found that I do this constantly, but sometimes have great ideas at that moment but then forget about all those thoughts. I say to myself, I should have written it down, organized my thoughts. With this planning sheet, you can organize your thoughts about that piece of text and keep a record of it for future use! This way, you do not need to re-read it in its entirety, and can always build from your initial thoughts. The planning sheet is a 2 page organizer where you can record the name, author and type of text you will use. I have added some literacy concepts for headings and have left some blank for your discretion. It’s a simple document that can easily be used as a point of reference for you or your team!
