When sessions are in full swing it can get a little crazy. As I am planning what we are going to do I find myself racking my brain asking the question,” What do I have to work on that?” I know I have tons of stuff but trying to remember it all can be challenging, especially early the morning.
What I have started to do is make a spreadsheet of all of my materials. Yes, it takes some time but it is not as bad as you may think. First, figure out how you want to set up your spreadsheet. I have mine set up my category ( multiple meaning words, following directions, etc ) rather than area ( expressive language, pragmatics, etc). Being specific with my grouping makes finding materials a lot easier.
Next, sort your materials out into your groups. I literally made piles on the floor. Then one by one, enter them in. Again, it will take time but will be totally worth it when you can just look on your sheet rather than scan and dig through your materials.
