I will be watching
how students sit on
the carpet, and
reward the students
who are behaving by
allowing them to
participate in my
lesson. As students
are working on the
patch they will need
to be at their desks
and on task.
As a class we will
discuss the activities
we do together and
what makes our
class special.

Objective

Anticipat
ory Set

Smart board/ Prezi,


20 white square,
construction paper
squares, and a
poster board

I will dress up as a
nurse and talk about
the differences
between a nurse and
a teacher.

We are looking at
this story because
we are all different
from each other, but
I also want you to be
like the characters
and see the good
things in other
people and in
yourself.

Today we will be
talking about
different jobs,
because each of us
have different
abilities and one day
everyone gets the
opportunity to work
somewhere and
affect the community.

Input: On the
carpet we will talk
about community
and use a quilt to
show what a
community is
Output: Students
will create a quilt
patch which they
will add to our class
community quilt.

Input: Read aloud,


and discussion/ list
of the story on the
smart board

Students will rotate


between each station
I will be assisting
students and asking
questions. Once we
finish the stations
students will process
what they learn and
draw a picture of
them in a profession.

I will hang the quilt


in the classroom so
that students can
see the diversity
and unity in the
classroom.

Boys and Girls I


loved seeing all of
your cats. Who can
tell the class what a
character is? Who
else can tell us a
fact about the
characters from our
book Square Cat? I

Our class is an
example of a
community, so it is
important to
understand what
role each person
plays in a
community.

provide examples of
what they learned
throughout the week in

in a quiet
position/behaving will
be called on to help
sort the items. I will
praise students who
are model examples.

I will lay out my items


on the carpet and call
on students to help
sort them out- at the
end they will discover
one bag symbolizes
winter and the other
symbolizes fall.
Each different season
comes with change,
as winter begins in
Indianan it is
important to be ready

Over the past unit we


have seen a variety
of differences that
impact a community.
We talked about the
unique qualities in
our class community
with a quilt. We
learned to be proud
of our abilities with
the story of Eula the
square cat. We then
talked about how
each job is different
and uses unique
tools. Then yesterday
we talked about how
all of the seasons
change. The seasons
also impact our
community and we
have to adapt to the
changes. As we go
