This unit was designed to go along with Eve Bunting’s "Our Teacher’s having a Baby". Many of the activities; however, can be completed without having read the story. Several of the activities can be used as bulletin board ideas. The letters to the new baby and to the substitute teacher are fun for everyone to read.
Students will be proud when they feel like they are included in this exciting time. These activities will give them a chance to feel involved. Reading Our Teacher’s having a Baby and completing the activity packet will help alleviate some of the anxiety students may fell because of an upcoming change.
