    So…is the spreadshet available to look at for the ideas? I know it’s a work in progress….  I *think* I have an idea of how I want to start, but I’m also feeling overwhelmed. (Trying to work past that feeling).

        Or (maybe) I should just be more observant of the wording in blue at the beginning of each lesson set….

    I love this idea of spiralling the curriculum and I’m beginning to grasp what that might look like in a classroom and throughout the year. As an elementary teacher though, I’m still trying to understand the planning piece and how this might look with primary students. Do you have any sources I could go to that provide an example like Micheal’s but from a primary teacher?

    I like the planning template. I think it’s really key to sit down and make those links of different strands in your planning (big picture) and then funneling down to the actual tasks that you could use for each. Doing that level of planning will really help in seeing the progression for spiralling.

    The planning will be key to using a combination of tasks and spiralling in the classroom. Seeing the plans as created and presented by Michael really gives me more of an idea of how I can carry this out. I am excited to get started and I appreciate Michael’s willingness to share.

    I’m hearing over and over again, how important it is to wrap our brains around the whole curriculum we teach and as a relatively new teacher that’s where my focus needs to be. As Kyle and Jon point out, an amazing amount of work has gone into this document and I really appreciate Micheal’s willingness to share.

    I think my big takeaway is that it will require a lot of pre-planning, but it will be worth it in the long run.
