    :help:
    I find myself excited every year about new ideas/activities/etc... I start off the year strong.. but by November/December, all the new stuff is long forgotten.

    for example, last year I wanted to do one period a week of just grammar. only happened for two weeks.

    what are your tips for making sure you stay consistent and not straying?

    (just writing things down in my lesson plan book doesn't help too much ..)

    thanks in advance!

    Put the kids in charge. Teach them the procedures and tell them when the next lesson will be. They will bug you until it happens :D.

    write yourself a letter. you might even be able to have someone else, like your dept chair or specialist or supervisor mail it to you at some point in the year.

    Put it in the plan book-if it has a block of time written as GRAMMAR-you will fill it! I do that for about 3 months in advance in my book-just lightly with pencil. It helps.

    Type up an outline for each subject you teach by the 6 weeks, and fill it in with planned activities :)
