Unit planning… what a weighted word that is! It is one that has been lingering in my head since the start of the semester, but I can no longer avoid it. This week I took the plunge and dove into curriculum, the library, and variety of resources to start planning my unit for my three week block. Kindergartens Going Green! A Cross Curricular thematic unit is my goal. I hope to integrate a social action plan for recycling in our school and cleaning up the school art. We will use art, technology, books, numeracy and writing to explore the 3 R’s and pollution and learn how we can help mother earth! Some highlights involve our superhero leader Michael Recycle and learning from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax! I will be updating you as my planning progresses and I welcome any ideas or suggestions you may have!
