Lesson Planet has been my place to go in order to find great additions to the curriculum. The lesson plans and worksheets I have found have been perfect for the lesson plans I had already planned. Because all lessons are reviewed by teachers, I know that every lesson I choose to look through will be pertinent and standard oriented without the fluff.
