Hey I want to see answers here too!
I want to revamp and revitalise my year! I need it!
I am using SOS this year so follow the lead of the ! if they have them they do that one first, then go on.
I have no set time or organisation for when they do what as of January.
Hope you get lots of info!
Btw, In the past I have used a Planner, Teacher Planner, and Lesson Plan booklets. I have created my own lesson plan s on my computer as well.
I think this year I am just feeling out of it, so will be checking back here for some of the info they give you!

High school is not going to kill me! I love it! When I forget what a great day I had today I will turn on the Spot and see the wisdom I receive from all you wise peeps! Thanks!
The planner I use is home made and can be found in the files section of the HSIZ site. If for any reason you haven't been approved after you registered....let me know. Several have not received the confirmation email due to their spam filters. I included a few pictures as well. I think it's called planner photos. http://www.hsiz.org/userPage.asp?userPage=filelibrary
I print/copy all my pages and take it to Office Depot to be sprial bound. I love it that way because I can flip it back and forth when it's on my desk or table.
Let me know if you have any questions or any trouble. We also came up with a planner for those with three where the third is younger and not requiring as much space as older kids but haven't loaded it to the site yet.
I have a planner book that has sections for recording a brief outline of what each child does each day, reading lists, writing logs, test resuls, outings & field trips....
But for actual lesson plans, some I follow straight from books, so just note the page numbers in the planner, but for unit studies I make my own. Each unit study is different - let me know if you want more detail
I made up my own Weekly Plan in Word (a 'table') on the computer. On the very top (before the table) I put Name, Grade, and Dates and spaces to fill in. At the top of the table I put the days of the week (horizontally). Down the left side are blank spaces where I write in the subjects/activities. DS7 is in 2nd grade - the subjects/activities are:
* Phonics, Letters & Sounds, Language
* Spelling, seatwork
* Arithmetic, seatwork
* Science, Geography/History, Social Studies, Health &
Safety (we do different ones on different days)
* Life Skills
This has worked well for me. I've tried other lesson plan layouts, but always came back to mine. I write in with a fine-point pencil as things get added and moved. I just print out (on both sides of the paper) however many I need, several at a time.
If you'd like to see a copy, just pm me and I'll email the file to you. It's mostly blank, so you could fill it in as you like. By the way, I use a 3-hole punch and file them in a binder.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
