Here is a digital Excel file to assist with weekly classroom and level planning. This can be filled out each week, printed on A3 paper to go up on the wall AND sent to your iPad so you have a handy copy at your finger tips at all times. As used in the OZClassroom Hacks room!

We have checklists for the subject area of English for Foundation to Level 3 so far! How do we use them? Easy, we know from the curriculum standards and the easy to read ‘I Can’ statements what is expected for the students to fulfil the level. Therefore these are not just a checklist, they are report comments-copied and pasted into our databanks, they are a way of groups students according to their learning point of need AND they are one of our resources for termly and weekly planning. Sound like something you could use?

Here we have for you a Level 3 (Grade 3, Grade 2 Extension students, Grade 4 Additional needs students) checklist for the Victorian Curriculum area of writing. Is the Victorian Curriculum the same as the Australian Curriculum? Yes I believe so, as for a brief moment there, we were but one curriculum joined in unity, before we Victorians boldly tore away from the breast of the Mother Nation! Each checklist is in a Excel format so you can tweak it to suit the needs of your school – you may want to add, or delete. Let’s face it, just because its in the curriculum doesn’t mean it needs to have a tick box and a tick. We use the checklist as a planning tool for our termly and weekly planners too.
