Thematic Unit 2
Standard #7: Planning for Instruction
The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by
drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as
well as knowledge of learners and the community context.
Name: Thematic Unit
Date: January 29th, 2016
Course: EDUC 255 Multicultural Teaching
Brief Description: This is a thematic planning page designed for a kindergarten class. I am using
the book If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff to demonstrate food to
kindergarteners. I am going to be teaching the kids appropriateness with food.
Rationale: To show my knowledge of the InTacs standard #7 I have selected If You Give a Cat a
Cupcake to show kindergarteners the relationship of food and animals. I have chosen this book
because it is easy for kids at a young age to realize the moral of the story.

Art:

Language Arts:

You Give a Cat a
Cupcake and then
