Goose ~ Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

We are back to doing a Kindergarten Literature Unit, consistently now and just finished Goose! I am finding myself getting sentimental about her Kindergarten year coming to a close and want to fit in as many fun units like this that I can!

Goose Kindergarten Literature Unit in Action

I usually set up a central area for our theme focus but we didn’t own 1 single goose so we compromised and brought a basket of birds along for our unit.  A basket of stuffed birds and the book was the extent of our theme set up…simple and just perfect.  She loved having the birds with us all week!  I forgot to take a picture though!

We spread this unit out over two weeks, doing just a little each day.


Day One

We spent a lot of time just reading and discussing the book on day one!  We then went on to our first and only activity, sorting mammals and birds. This was a new concept for her so we took a long time discussing the differences together!

Day Two

G is for…

Making patterns with eggs. adult and baby geese…

She really enjoyed the character connection which talked about how God made the goose special with her ability to fly.  We then discussed ways he made Ladybug special. She chose the ones she wanted and colored a picture of herself.

Day Three

Day three, she painted a goose.  That was it.  Then we waited for it to dry and she cut it out and put it together!

Day Four

Working on reading number words one-ten with our 3 part card matching.

Rhyming words

Day Five

Sequencing the story…

Goose -5390


Day Seven

We did something new with the tracing numbers printable.  I drew colored starting dots on each number and then laid the markers out.  Before she traced the numbers she had to pick the matching marker to use.  She really liked this!

Day Eight

We worked on the other character connection, which was VERY applicable to her right now!  She is struggling in her gymnastics class and wanting things to be easier.  We are focusing on making positive statements there and trying, and not saying I can’t!  This activity taught the word perseverance and contrasted it with quitting.  Then we sorted phrases together to discuss the meanings.

The Bible verse was also a great fit, as she traced we discussed.

Day Nine

For our final activity, she did the comprehension questions!  She is even beginning to read some of them herself now!

Goose ~ 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.

Goose Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

Goose is a favorite book of Ladybug’s, featuring a goose who grows up away from her momma!  The goose feels different from her other animal friends and goes out on her own and learns she can fly!

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, shapes, number words, and counting/writing numbers to 30.

Number Word 3 Part Cards ShapesPatterns Numbers 1-30

  

Lots of literacy activities; Letter G sound, sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and rhyming words.

Letter G is for Story SequencingComprehension Rhyming WordsWriting

  

For our Science focus, children will sort birds/mammals, and sequence the life cycle of a goose.

Sorting Birds and Mammals Goose Life Cycle

  

The first character connection is focused on each of use being special in our own way just as goose was.  The second is about persevering through difficult tasks.

Bible verses are available in a few different formats, choose the one you like best.

Bible Verse Printables Letter G

RLRS Letter G Matthew 28 Bible Verse Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter G are available to download for free!  G is for GO! This set is based on Matthew 28:19, “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds. I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter N right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter G. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She loves the coloring page. She likes to make it match.

I wrote about my views on using themes with young kids, and there are certainly a LOT of early childhood themes to choose from! When you begin planning, Pinterest and Google can be a bit overwhelming!  I am creating this series to help you with your planning.  I have gathered all FREE theme based printable packs {mainly early childhood focused, tots-1st grade} that I am aware of and sorted them by letter so you can browse through and get ideas all in one place! I did NOT include holiday based packs, simply because there are so many and they are pretty easy to find when holidays roll around.

I have included free printable theme packs from bloggers around the web including; Homeschool Creations, 2 Teaching Mommies, Spell Outloud, 3 Dinosaurs, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Me & Marie Learning, Ooopsey Daisy, All Our Days, Creative Learning Fun, Royal Baloo, 123 Homeschool 4 Me, Lawteedah, Our Little Monkeys, Creative Preschool Resources, Our Country Road, Homeschool Share, Gift of Curiosity, This Reading Mama, and Over the Big Moon. {if any of you ladies notice an error please let me know!}

If the pack was created by another blogger, I listed their {blog name} in the brackets.  If there aren’t any brackets, I made it!
