This resource includes all 10 units of Benchmark Advance planned for you using the Markers and Minions strategies. Each unit comes with pre-filled planning templates with the lesson parts being editable. There are templates for both CA Edition teachers and National Edition teachers. While planning, I took notes on the decisions that I made based on what I would do with my own class. After reading the notes, you can decide if these planning decisions work for you, too. If not, simply edit the blue boxes on the templates. Also included with the notes are extension ideas for each unit. They range from simple art activities to big projects. In addition to all of this, I have also designed anchor charts to introduce each unit. You can trace the chart onto butcher paper or you can print and enlarge it.

Before you buy, please understand:
This is meant to be a time-saver. Many of these ideas, plans, and charts can be found if you search through my Facebook group. Please only purchase this if you would rather not have to search for it all.
