We read this week about families and their members, then represented our own families with a craft. We read about babies and the grown-ups who love them in More More More Said the Baby by Vera Williams. In Taking Care of Mama by Mitra Modarressi we read about a Raccoon family trying to do all the household chores and take care of the baby while Mama Raccoon was sick in bed! The child in I Lost My Bear by Jules Feiffer appealed to family members for help when she couldn't find her missing toy. Our last book, The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins featured a mother who made wonderful cookies and her kind children who has lots of friends! For some people, friends are family!
Using foam shapes, we made our families on a square paper plate shaped like a house. There were lots of different types of families, including a family of birds!
