If you want a planning sheet that crosses the curriculum, includes the community, and helps you create an exciting thematic unit, then this product is for you. It includes blocks for all subjects (math, reading, science, social studies, word study, etc), as well as planning blocks for guest speakers, technology resources, decorations, publicity, and special classes (art/music/library/physical education, etc). This planning sheet will help you organize your ideas and activities in one place so that you can see at a glance what your thematic unit will consist of. When I use it, sometimes I keep it as a regular sized copy, but more often, I enlarge it on the copy machine to 11" x 17" so that I have more space. This is a great resource and makes planning a thematic unit a lot easier. It can be handwritten or you can type your ideas into it.
