This last week we learned about the importance of our family and our roles and responsibilities within our family. We also learned about how families can be different sizes and do different things.

One of the books we read was “My Wild Sister and Me” and drew a picture that illustrated the things we like to do with members in our family. We compared our activities with the boy and his sister playing dress up and make believe.

For partner reading students read emergent reader books about different members of the family. Then they learned how to take turns reading and reading to their partner.

For math we created a class graph of how many students in the class have brothers, sisters, both brothers and sisters, or no siblings. We talked about we compared which group had the most and which group had the least. Then we created our own family trees with the number of apples that matched how many people were in our immediate family.
