On Tuesday it was requested that I post my "Seven Steps" I do every day. It takes a little while, but I walk in every morning feeling ready for the day.
Here's what I do

-update my plan book (I do the bottom half "tentative plans" and the top half what I actually did. Its a good place to write things like 'be careful with time' or 'improve #3 for next year'...)

-update list of assignments on bulletin board

-update HW on my website

-fill out the Agenda board for the next day

-Answer my "What do we expect them to learn" questions

-lay out my materials for the next day on my front table

-make sure I posted all my attendance (from any where in IC hit the refresh button and it will take you to the opening screen that clearly shows if any more classes need to get posted)

I think Kate's idea for using post it notes for what you think you will do in your plan book is a great idea.... It really works for her.

I love this. I go through similar steps everyday before I leave and you are absolutely walk in the next day ready for class and prepared for the inevitable, unexpected things that always seem to come up first thing in the morning. I think I will put in writing my "seven steps" to make them official!

I also really like what you do with your "tentative plans". I do something similar in excel. My long range plan (day-by-day schedule) is updated daily. As I complete a day I add shading to the entire row so it is easy to see where I'm headed next. Then I highlight in red items that we didn't quite finish or get to. I also have a column for notes so that next time I can improve my lesson.

Thank you for sharing...
