Use a template

When designing a unit plan, it is easy to work from a template of the following components, finding activities and resources in each category:

*  Books to Read

*  Words to Spell

*  Writing Ideas

*  Math Connection

*  Science Activities

*  Social Studies Activities

*  Related Music

*  Art Projects

*  Physical Activities/Games

When planning units using these components, I mark each item as a required activity or a free choice, so that students have some freedom in choosing ctivities that fit with their learning styles, yet have some foundational understanding of the topic.
