These Lesson Plans are organized by month so that you can start when you want to. I created these lessons plans based on how I taught Kindergarten with Texas state standards. However, I also used some Montessori ideas and “letter-sound” teaching order. The needed worksheets are included in each weekly lesson plan. There are not as many Math sheets though, because I am sole believer in using manipulatives for Math. Everything within the lesson is explained in simple terms, to keep you from spending hours planning and reading. I love this format as it worked in my classroom I hope you will enjoy it too! Note: (1-1, means Month 1-Week 1….2-2, means Month 2-Week 2). I now teach in Alabama, and have re-vamped these lesson plans and made them more exquisite! The lesson plans that are Common Core State Standards Aligned are available at my teachers pay teachers shop (green bean kindergarten). The ones that are not CCSS aligned are for FREE here on my Blog, and those are just months 1-4.
Month 1-4 Overview- The attachment below is a “time line” that outlines the skills that will be taught during months 1-4. Each “month” of lessons has 4 weeks and you can begin any time of the year. They are designed solely skill based, so you can weave in your own themes and favorite stories as you wish. You can literally use these skill and standards based lessons as the foundation for your favorite lessons-just figure out how to align them and match up the skills.
Each Week below (1-4) has its own Lesson Plan with the worksheets attached to the same document.

You are free to use these lesson plans, change and share as you see fit to meet the need of your students. However, you may not claim them as your own. I am happy to share as long as you reference my website.

As of 1/25/14, I am writing Month 7 Lesson Plans. As of 2/23/14, I have completed Month 8 and I will no longer post in this section of lesson plans, since this section has the older version of how I wrote my lesson plans. Also, the time line/overview sheets below have been edited quite a bit and are reflected in my final products in my TpT links.
