We enjoyed sharing pictures and telling about our families! We sorted pictures based on the number of people in our families. We also told stories about various people in our families based on the heart we pulled from the basket.
we displayed them on our Family Tree!
Yellow = Mom/Step-Mom
Red = Dad/Step-Dad
Green = Brother
Blue = Sister
Pink = Grandparent
Orange = Pet
Brown = Other
Purple = Me
We used shapes and lines to draw pictures of our family. We then illustrated our pictures, using scribbles/lines, letters we know, and/or our understanding of the letter-sound relationship.
We used our understanding of uppercase and lowercase letters to match parents to children.
At the Block Center, we tried to construct various family's houses.
We also played with the dollhouse, as we experimented with various family structures.
At the Dramatic Play Center, we played "House" as we took turns role-playing various family members and their behavior.
