Online Lesson Plans w/ Common Core

Sorry I've been a little MIA lately. 
Always the same excuse - Life in the fast lane!! 

We have this wonderful (insert sarcastic voice/face) new evaluation at our school and one of the categories we have to get ranked on is lesson plans. We provide them when asked and we get a score between 1-4. Now, to get the fat 4 you have to include Common Core within. I have been looking around at online sites that make adding in the core a little bit easier. I haven't found "the one" just yet but I have a couple I'm trying out. I'm linking up with A Teacher's Treasure. She is hosting a Lesson Plan Linky party. Fun huh?! (more proof of my nerdness)


As far a online lesson sites I'm currently going to stick with Planbookedu.com. I like the layout better and you have options for layouts when you print. It is super easy to forward plans or attach files. I included  youtube videos in my plans and they show right up for the admin. to click and see. It is set up much like Blogger with the HTML and all. 
The other site that a few of my co-workers use is called Planbook.com. (easy to confuse huh?) I hated the way these looked when I printed them. The CC was a little easier to add but ugh I hate the way they print.

Here is the big question!!!! 
What online lesson plan sites do you recommend?? 
Have any of you found one that is super easy??

I am a beginning third grade teacher and didnt even know there were any lesson plan sites. I have been using the 6 point grid that everyone else is using and not liking it. I will check these out ... thanks for sharing :-)

Thanks for linking up!

I've found the online sites not as user friendly as I'd like them to be.
Which is why I stuck to my word doc. lesson plan format. I do like planbook.com but think they still have to upgrade it a bit before I dwitch to it. It didn't fit my needs.

Hey girl, I think YOU rock and I feel like I haven't talked to you in forever!!! This year has been totally hectic, so I get what you mean! I'm sorry I don't have any online planning resources I use to share with you, I haven't been able to find any that work for me. I probably should get going on that because I'm fairly sure we'll be common core by next year or the one after that too! I hope all is well and I will see you around the blogs!! :)

My team uses plan bookends.com and we love it! We team plan...we each plan a subject. I love that I can post .docs, .pdfs, powerpoints, movies, and flip charts all online in one place! When I print mine I export to ms word and make it cute fonts and color coded...love it!

Any way to benefit from reading this blog w/out having to listen your choice of music?

Check out Jefferson County Schools' Dynamic Curriculum (http://jc-schools.net/dynamic/). This is a project I started several years ago. It is based it on the Common Core standards. The lesson plans are arranged by content area and are all created by classroom teachers. Their website has a wealth of resources (http://jc-schools.net).

You are more than welcome to hit the mute button on your computer or scroll down and hit the off button on the player if you dislike my choice in music.

Thanks for the info. CC!
I will definitely check it out!

First of all: 'OH MY' at the music comment!! The fastest way to stop the "unwanted" music is to leave the site!


Secondly: Wonderful information. Thanks so much for sharing!

I can't figure out how to get the standards added to the plans. Can you tell me how?
