Make a productive home/school connection with a Home Activity Card and Activity Sheet for A Chair for My Mother. They provide caregivers simple pre and post reading activities with a minimum of preparation. A modified School Activity Card works well in a small group or tutoring lesson.
Color recognition, the sense of touch, and counting change are among the readiness activities connected to this children's classic.
A Knowledge/Skills/Materials Chart simplifies preparation and Bibliography, including annotations, connects A Chair For My Mother to current copyright titles for pairing nonfiction or related fiction. Materials are presented in color to laminate and keep with the book. Black and white printing works fine allowing the caregiver to keep the activity to use again and the child to add color.
