12 Month Curriculum Map with Mentor Text Lists for K-2 (FREE) 2019

Curriculum Map update for 2019 at last! “How do I plan out my year-long curriculum?”  is probably one of my most frequently asked questions. 

Curriculum Map! Looking to organize your year-long plan for kindergarten and first grade? Here it is! It includes Reading, writing, math, and word study. Plus a ton of FREE resources! #curriculummapIn the past, I had planned out my year through a combination of paper, Post-It Notes, gum wrappers (kidding on the last one).

But when I lead our district’s instructional team, I had to get organized.  That was probably 10 years ago and I have been using curriculum maps ever since.

Curriculum Map: Month by Month

 It is not a secret that I  am not a fan of a basal or boxed curriculum.  I never want to take the “teacher” out of teaching.  By having a map, I can plan my instructional path for the year.   This includes word study, reading comprehension, writers’ workshop, math workshop “Big Ideas,” and STEM focus!

  1. Thank you for all the hard work this represents. I hope you at least got to do some of it pool side 🙂 Enjoy your last two conferences and the fleeting moments of summer!

  2. This is exactly what I have been "meaning to get to" all summer! I have a K/1 class this year and I was having difficulty creating a format that worked for what I needed to cover in each grade. Thank you for this amazing resource. It is brilliant and I am looking forward to using this in my planning! VERY HELPFUL!

  3. You all are so welcome! I needed to make this for me and I am glad you are going to be able to rest easy knowing it is available for you! Thank you for your comments! I do appreciate them!

  4. These are great! My grade level is getting together next week to do long range plans and these will help so much! Of course we all do some things differently, but you put on paper what was only starting to form in my summer brain! Now if you could start on the math…. just kidding! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. This is awesome!!! I am so thankful that I got to learn from you at I Teach K! this summer. You are such an inspiration! And to do this and share with others…well, you are amazing! I appreciate your hard work.

  6. Omg! this is exactly what I have been putting off doing!!! Thanks so much for sharing this and for free!!! You are amazing! I already have all the Reader's Workshops and I am currently in the process of making all the posters!!! Thank you so much!!!

  7. DeeDee you are amazing! I hope that you get time to enjoy the summer. People are so lucky to see you at conference. I'm glad I got the chance!!

  8. Just the word Curriculum Map strikes terror into the hearts of many. We worked it to death in after school inservice meetings two years in a row (and then never looked at them again). Thinking of a curriculum map as an outline for the year and a guideline for the direction you are heading makes it much easier to understand and more likely to be used all year. Thank you for sharing yours! It is a great starting point for making my own.

  9. Thank you!! This is something my team is going to be doing in the near future, and seeing someone else's laid out, makes the task seem doable. Thanks for the ideas and encouragement. I will definitely be using this! Do you plan to do one for math?

  10. Wow! This is amazing and you are apologizing for what exactly? We started fundations last year and this will be so helpful. We used the letters as they were presented in our reading program and it made starting Fundations in January a little tricky. Thank you!

  11. Wow! Thank you so much Dee Dee. You are such an inspiration to all of us. I appreciate so much your willingness to share with all of us. My kinders and I love love love your products. Bless you!

  12. Thanks so much for sharing, SHARING!, all your hard work! I teach Gr. 1 in Canada and I absolutely agree, this outline can easily work for it too. Enjoy the remaining time you have off, we don't go back til beginning of Sept. One more month to go, wahoo! Judy

  13. Thank you so much. You are so generous!! This will be so helpful. We are to begin using the Common Core ELA standards this year at my school. This will be a great guide for us. Thanks again!

  14. I have put my email address in to get the free curriculum map, but I haven’t received any email. I did it about a week ago, and again today. Can you please email it to me? [email protected]

  15. Hi! Just wondering what literacy program you use at your school? Are you familiar with American Reading program and the IRLA assessment?

  16. I have entered my email three times over the past two days but have not received any reply or files for your K-2 Curriculum Map. I tried twice with my school email (and even checked the spam folder) and then tried my personal email and I still haven’t received any replies. What am I doing wrong??

  17. I would like to have a free copy of 2 Month Curriculum Map With Mentor Text Lists For K-2 (FREE) 2019, but everytime I enter “join” it doesn’t work. Could you please send to my via email? Appreciate it.

    Thank you.

  18. WOW!! LOVE THIS!! I’m wondering if there is an editable version of this?! My county requires us to follow there scope and sequence, but it’s not as user friendly as this! I would love to be able to move around standards and such. If not, I’d love to know how you created this!

    1. Christina, I have to tell you a VERY sad story. I accidentally saved over my original. I can NOT believe I did that. SO next time I have to update it, I have to start from scratch! GAH! Yes! I CRIED!!!
