Two Thirty-Five Minute Class Periods
The learner will:
- describe the family unit as a community.
- identify differences in families that make up the class.
Play or sing the Sesame Street song: "The People in Your Neighborhood."
The Note to Parents/Guardian (see Attachment One) should be sent home after day one. If all the students are drawing pictures, this may be done as an in-class activity.
Lesson Developed By:Tiffany Jackson
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Your child is being asked to bring in a picture of your family or household, either a photograph or one he or she drew, to be added to our classroom "Family Album". Please make sure that your child knows the names of the members in the household. If it is a photo, ask them to rehearse with you when this picture was taken and how old he/she was when the picture was taken.
Have your child rank the members from oldest to youngest. Discuss what each member in the household contributes and how important every member is to the family.
Your son/daughter should bring the picture back to school and be ready to share it with the class. The picture will be returned.
Thank you for your help with this project.
