Lots of things are happening in Mr. Bowen’s All-Star class during our families unit. First we read the story “I Love it When You Smile” and made connections with the story. Students talked about times when their family members such as their mom or dad helped try to make them feel better. Then students illustrated their connections to the story.
Since the beginning of the school we have been collecting pictures of our family. This week students got to share their pictures with the class. We have also been learning how to ask questions in our class, so the class got to ask questions of the person sharing.
For a math center students rolled a dice with family members on it, and students colored in the corresponding person on their graph. Students used the graphs they created and compared them to their own families.
For art students made hand painting family trees, putting apples on the trees for each family member that lives in their house. Members of our class also made construction paper puppets of their moms or dads.
