Thank you for your interest in this resource! It is a great little book to use when studying families! Copy one book per student to illustrate following your discussions. There is a page for each of the following discussion points:
* what my family looks like
* what my family does together
* what traditions my family has
* what stories we share
* how my family has changed over time
There is also a family letter to explain what will be discussed and asking parents to complete the section about “family stories” at home, returning it to school to be shared with peers. After sharing, simply add that page to the book to complete it!
This booklet can be used with any family unit you have created. It can also be a great companion for the First Grade NYS Social Studies Family Inquiry and Family Stories Inquiry. I hope it is useful to you and fun for your students! ~ Sara M.
