I am a first yeat teacher who just signed the contract last week. I will be teaching first grade and I am VERY overwhelmed. I am the only first grade teacher with a class of 12 so far. I am horribale about planning lessons too far in advance. I find if I do that I never stick to them anyway because I find a better idea or I get stuck on a concept for longer then I thought I would. Being that it is my first year and I have a lot on my plate I want to make sure I use my time wisely. How far in advance should I try and plan? I don't want to make it look like I am not planning anything, would maybe 3-4 weeks at a time be sufficent?
