Normally I would post this in the New Teachers forum.. but i'm looking for insight from veteran teachers. This is my first year teaching and I am always planning my lessons the night before. I can't really figure out a way to prevent this! Often my plan for the day is close to what i wrote down but often I need to base what i do the next day on what we actually covered on the current day - hence needing to sit down at the end of the day to start planning what needs to come next. Is this just typical of my first year or is this just how it is in general?
