Product Description
First and foremost I do NOT claim to be an expert on families. While we all have them – they are complex at best. In many of our classrooms, discussions about family have to be done “carefully.” It is often no longer just about having a mom and a dad. Celebrations, such as Christmas can be stressful for our students has they struggle with spending some time with mom and some time with dad. Step-siblings are a reality for many and this can get very confusing as you talk about family trees. I have attempted to create images of families that capture those similar to our students. I have chosen Patricia Polacco books as mentor texts because I feel her stories can enable us to have many rich conversations about family.

Book List:
*When Lightning Comes In A Jar
*Thunder Cake
*In Our Mothers' House
*Some Birthday
*An Orange For Frankie
*Trees of the Dancing Goats
*Rechenka's Eggs
*The Keeping Quilt

Other Books: (not by Patricia Polacco)
*The Matchbox Diary
*The Family Book
*Throw Your Tooth on the Roof

I have included a booklet/project for students to complete at home with their family.

I have included many "interactive notebook" style pages, covering topics, such as different families, traditions and heritage, origins of traditions, and celebrations past and present.

I have included full-colour examples for you to display, however, all the student pages in black and white for crisp, clear photocopying.

I have included a snapshot of all the pages in the preview so please have a look to see the unit in more detail.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my product.

Happy Teaching!
Natalie
