Planned for Me: Second Grade (Benchmark Advance)


Save time with ready-made anchor charts, planning templates, notes, and extension ideas.

Share it:



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. 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. There is also a student version of each anchor chart, meant to be printed on regular paper, that the students can complete as you are teaching your chart. It has fill-in-the-blank sections under each category of the chart.

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.

    The anchor charts look amazing! I cannot wait to use these with my students, I especially love that there is an option for students to fill in the blanks on their own charts. This will be great when it comes to reader’s notebooks; as students will be able to refer back to these as needed.

    Last year, I used the 5th grade planned for me units and it was such a huge time saver! So, of course, now that I am teaching 2nd grade this year, I immediately purchased the 2nd grade planned for me and it is already saving me lots of prep and planning time!

    I haven’t used these yet, but I feel like they will be a huge help for my planning this year. This looks fantastic! Thank you.
