First Grade CCSS ELA Pacing Guide

WOWZA friends!  After a nail-biting day of professional development with my first grade teammates from across the district, I felt I needed some restructuring in the Common Core department.  Our grade-level has been struggling with "un-packing" the ELA standards in more efficient way.  Last year, we created a document that was more than 50 pages... Of just the ELA strands!  YIKES!  It is the most UN-user friendly document I have in my possession!  One of our beloved veterans on the team, Miriam, was looking for something more effective for us to use, so tonight, I think I am going to make her happy! I found an edible template, free from a Google Search, and I added all my materials and assessments in.
This is still a work in progress but 9 pages is much more DOable than 52.
I would love your feedback and suggestions.  I have a feeling I may be leaving something out...  This is a word document so I apologize I have no JPegs for better images.
Please feel free to click here or on the image below 
to download the document.
What types of Pacing Guides are you using?
I would love to hear about them!
Happy Hump Day!

  3. This document is amazing. Very user friendly. We are just in the process of making the switch to common core so our old pacing guide is based off our reading series.
