Curious George Goes To Kindergarten

Literacy Curious George Kindergarten Lesson PlanWe found this fun lesson at ReadWriteThink, a fantastic resource for teachers, and just had to share! Originally written by Dr. Deborah Kozdras and Tiffany Hernandez, and adapted by Julie Blair, students will be delighted to encounter one of their favorite childhood story character's in the classroom.

To start off the unit, students will spend time "getting to know" George {or perhaps getting to know him again}, by reading books and watching video clips. After teaching your kiddos about using webs to organize information, work on a character web as a group, describing George's attributes. Next, in a whirlwind of fun and activity {which includes field trips all over the school and a plush Curious George}, students will then set to work creating their own story as teams or groups. Along the way they'll practice sequencing, build writing skills, tackle new technology, learn to work in a group, and much much more!
