Family looks many different ways . Some families are large and always together. Some families are small. Some families don’t have a dad or a mom. Today we asked the littles what a family is .
One of our favorite stories to read while talking about families is the story of ” The Three Bears.” This is a great story for talking about traditional roles that people play in families . Does the mom usually cook or maybe dad cooks more often ? It is also a great story for sequencing sizes since everything Goldilocks encounters if BIG for Papa Bear , medium for Momma Bear and Small for Wee Little Baby Bear. We can also address safety while reading this story and do some predictive text reading. If on every page I say ” and the wee little baby bear” in my wee little baby bear voice the children will most likely join me in reading . They know what is coming next. Predictive text reading is a pre-reading skill. Tomorrow we will consider acting out the three bears story.
Family – no matter who you consider those people to be are so very important.
