Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables ~ The Dog Who Had Kittens

The Dog Who Had Kittens Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables



Our next Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack is ready!  I continue to develop literature unit studies behind the scenes and am excited to share our next free printable unit with you.

A few have asked if I am going in the order the books are listed here on the blog, and the answer is NO.  I am going in random order and that list is not set in stone.  On the website here, at the bottom, I will share the next 2 books I am working on so you’ll have a bit of notice in case you need it.

The Dog Who Had Kittens is a favorite book of Ladybug’s, featuring Eloise the cat and Baxter the dog.  I had never heard of this book until it showed up in a stack of books someone gave us. It is on the longer side, so you’ll want to snuggle up if you plan to read this each day during the unit.  This is a sweet story and a great one if you have a dog or cat lover like I do!


In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

lesson plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose patterns, days of the week, story problems, and graphing.

Basic Story Problems   Graphing Dog Breeds

Lots of literacy activities; Letter D sound, sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and sight word work.

For our Science focus, children will describe the particular features of a Basset Hound {we will try to grab a non-fiction book about Basset Hounds for this activity too}, and also sort adult/baby animals.

The character connection is focused on being grateful, as Eloise learned to be in the end.

Cats Unit Study ~ 1st Grade

My son, Krash, requested his summer learning to be focused on one of his favorites ~ CATS!  He collects little stuffed cats and has them with him almost all of the time!

Krash and his cats

Krash just completed 1st grade and since I know what I want him working on this summer, I created this unit study with my goals for him in mind.  I hope some of your cat loving kids might be able to use these printables also! 

{disclaimer: there are affiliate links in this post}Why Do Cats Meow

I created daily work for him based on the book, Why Do Cats Meow? which is at a good reading level for him to read aloud to me.  He will read the portion and we will work on the printable together each day. There are 17 different sections and printables to go along.

You can see some of the printables that go along with this book below.  Krash is learning cursive formation, which is why the tracing titles are on each page.  I added a print set at the end of the file for those of you who want to use these but have kids not working on cursive yet.  The little activities after the fill in the blanks and tracing are just quick ways to get in some skills.

I have the printables in a small 1/2” notebook for us to work through with the book.Cat Unit Study -5132


He is interested in different breeds of cats too, so I made him a set of 3-part cards to learn with. I got lots of my information from the Cats DK Pocket book.

Cat Breed 3 Part Cards

I have these in our mini pocket chart on display, the kids love looking at them and especially giggling at the Cornish Rex and the Sphinx!Cat Unit Study -5128


Finally, I thought it would be fun to introduce him to classification by discussing the classification of a domestic cat.

Classification of Cats


We have lots of cat books also, some are pictured below and in the widget…Cat Unit Study -5130


We will also be using a few resources I found while searching online! I love this cat study from Sandra’s Savvy Teaching Tips. The Cats Lapbook from Homeschool Share is great!  I will also be pulling out our Cats Preschool Pack in case Ladybug wants to join Krash!
