This 4 minute video talks about the importance of utilizing repetition in your daily lesson plans. I walk through an example of how I used one of my favorite tools, a literacy unit. I never felt like I was cheating my students by repeating the same lesson plan several days in a row. I just was strategic in making sure there was some purposeful variation to keep them engaged. By day 5, the kids would be so excited because they could predict what was coming and could read along. Boy, do I miss those days!! Happy teaching to all you still out in the trenches. You are making more of a difference than you will ever know.
