A House is a Home for Everyone! - A Storybook Companion With Digital Activities
- Easel Activity
What educators are saying
Looking for something new and exciting? This wonderful resource is filled with carefully selected math and literacy activities as well as poetry and home ideas for family projects. Our home is a unique theme that is rarely explored, yet, it is such an important concept to explore with students.
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.
