Tired of the same teaching themes and you want a change? After coming across the book A House is a House for Me by Mary Ann Hoberman, I decided to do a unit on Homes (and Family) in lieu of The Gingerbread Man in December. The potential of the use of a “Home” theme is incredible and still reinforces remediation skills that some children still need. This is an important concept to me because of my own experiences of teaching so far away from family and home. A high degree of mobility is demanded of our students. Our children move around the world, acclimating themselves to new cultures, new friends, new homes and new surroundings. Therefore a home is such a precious concept.
In this unit you will find math and literacy activities, poetry, flip-flap book, an emergent reader and take home ideas for family projects. I hope you enjoy it!
Would love it if you clicked on the green star to follow me!
