Be the first to know about new tools and features on Education.com.
We've updated the lesson plans section of Education.com! This includes improvements for speed - pages now load up to four times faster so that you can find resources more quickly. To go along with that we've made the search bar in lesson plans (on the lefthand) more powerful. Try it out - search by author name, Common Core node if applicable, or any important terms that may come up in the text of a lesson plan.
Now you can also filter by multiple grades or subjects. Want to see both preschool and kindergarten lesson plans? Hold the shift key when selecting grade or subject filters.
We started out lesson plans by asking contributors to give us their best, tried-and-true lessons from their own classrooms, and grew from there. We hope these new technical features help you get the most out of that lesson plans content.

Organizing for the classroom requires teachers to meticulously plan out each day, hunting for resources to complement each lesson and creating backup plans for students who need differentiation.
We recruited over 70 contributors with experience teaching elementary-aged children from all over the United States to share their expertise. Working with a diverse group of educators gave our lesson plans a wide breadth of themes and knowledge, ensuring that all teachers could find a lesson that worked for their classes.
To date, we have published 965 lesson plans and counting, moving forward to our goal of 1000. Our lesson plans cover math, science, reading, writing, social studies, and ESL topics.
"The inspirations for our lesson planning template included the structure of mini-lessons used by Lucy Calkins in the Teachers College of Reading and Writing Curriculum and the structure of interactive modeling developed by Responsive Classroom," explains Tatum Omari, the Director of Curriculum at Education.com. "The end product we were aiming for with our template was one that incorporated best practices in instruction and that could easily be adapted to any subject area."
Many of our lesson plans are paired with original Education.com content, such as worksheets, customized worksheets, workbooks, digital games and activity ideas. These materials help students practice the skills using a range of strategies, so there’s something useful for every kind of learner.
Our new lesson plans help streamline the process of classroom planning by offering educators structured plans that help students practice everything from counting and multiplication to reading comprehension.
Lesson plans are available for preschool through fifth grade—check out our growing collection at http://www.education.com/lesson-plans/.
