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!

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.

Personal Word Wall Printables

Personal Word Wall Printables



In the past I have used a few different kinds of word walls.  Most recently I used a large portable word wall with Krash when he did You Can Read.  For Ladybug, I wanted simple and small and opted for a personal word wall in a file folder. I created some simple printables, trimmed the edges, glued them in and DONE!

As we go through You Can Read, we will add words to her word wall once she can read them independently. You can see in the photo below the words she knows in the letter A section.  I am writing in pencil in case we make any mistakes.

I added a handwriting chart to the back side of the word wall, for easy reference in case needed.  I had some extra space so it seemed like a logical addition.

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter C

RLRS Letter C Genesis 1 1 Bible Verse Printables



Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter C are available to download for free!  C is for CREATED! This set is based on Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  This is one of the easier verse to explain to young children, and a shorter verse so easier to memorize!

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it.

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 H right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter C. 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.

Here she was coloring the coloring page, she LOVES to color.  Again, she wanted to copy the poster graphic so you can see it sitting in front of her.

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Bb…

She dislikes this page so I changed it up for her and we used glue and string for the first set of letters, she loved this!

RLRS Letter C -9599

Then, we used Wikki stix for the second set of letters, and she happily wrote the last set!

RLRS Letter C -9604

 

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter C -9571

I have been asked how we do this activity so I took a video to share what it looks like for her.  By the time we do this activity, she has the verse memorized which makes it easier.  If she didn’t I would read her each word and have her find the match.  You can easily adjust the difficulty level of this to meet the needs of your child. I shared a clip of this video on Instagram here!

 

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram. Here is  our home banner!

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter C in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Jingle Bells.

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

A Color of His Own is a favorite book of Ladybug’s.  This is a popular book I am sure many of you are familiar with. Ladybug really likes chameleons and other reptiles, which is why I think she really enjoys this story.  I expanded on many aspects of the story for the printables, hope you enjoy them!


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!

A Color of His Own Lesson Plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose counting 1-30 {with some tracing}, working with a number line, positional words, and shape identification.
