ELA Curriculum Map Template {Free Download}

I posted my Curriculum Map on Instagram and had a few people that were interested in the layout.  If this is something you feel that you could use as a starting point, please feel free to download it below!   


A Few Notes:

I created my personal curriculum map to correlate with our new reading series adoption (Journeys).  

This is an editable document.

If you like the fonts I used, the last page of this file includes links for downloading them. (They are all free.)  :)

I created this document in my Pages program (for Mac).  f you would like the Pages version, click HERE!

If you would like this in Word format, click HERE!

The green portions of the map are where I'm listing the resources I plan on using to teach each skill.  I'm doing this mainly because I start to forget all of the wonderful things I've downloaded and purchased from other teachers!  Although, as I was working on this yesterday, I felt that this was the most overwhelming part!  My plan is to leave plenty of space is those boxes and to hand-write some of the resources in as the year progresses and then type them in the file next summer.  That way I hopefully have a nice reference for the following year!  We'll see how it goes.  This is my first time making a curriculum map...  :)

  1. Jessica that is so sweet of you! I've never thought of posting a link for the fonts (so silly). We use Houghton-Mifflin, so your format is perfect! Plus, I love the idea of writing down TpT resources because I have a boatload! Thanks again!

  2. Awesome!!!This is just what I was looking for! Unfortunately I cannot get it to open correctly in word. Stinks being techno-challenged!

    1. I added a Word version of this above! I don't think it was you! I just think it was having a hard time converting over the tables I created. :) Hope it comes in handy!

  6. Hi Jessica. I love this and we just adopted Journeys as well. However, I tried to open the word version and for some reason it comes out all messed up. Is there something I am doing wrong? Hopefully I'll be able to use this as I have already started trying to figure out weekly skills.

    1. Hi, Courtney- Unfortunately I'm not sure what the problem is. It opened fine for a few others. Are you possibly using an outdated version of Word?

    2. When I downloaded the file, mine came out funny as well. Rows overlapping in an odd sort of way. I decided to save it anyway, just so I could at least use it as a reference. To my surprise, when I opened the save document, it was totally okay. I've had that happen a few times before--the preview look is different from the saved document. Thanks!

  7. Hello! I am a first year teacher and we just adopted the Journey's series as well so this is SO helpful! Do you only have the editable version available and not the one you are using? Just wondering if I could see a finished copy to get more ideas on additional resources :) let me know! Thanks SO much for sharing!

  9. Thank you for sharing your ELA curriculum mapping guide. I have been trying to find a template that fits my needs between my complete unit description and my pacing guide. Where did you get your graphics or design for your template?
