    Kindergarten Inquiry Unit

    I Am Special — What makes me special?

    Big Ideas
    • identity
    • self-awareness
    Curriculum Connections
    • art
    • music
    • drama
    • writing

    Students explore the inquiry question by recognizing personal interests, strengths, and accomplishments. Opportunities for oral language and playful learning are woven throughout as students discuss what is special about themselves, draw their special characteristics, use stick puppets to re-enact a story, and make masks to discuss who they are. Working with Words lessons accompany each Shared Reading text, and a text-type writing study invites students to draw and describe what is special about themselves.
