Family (unit 1 OWL)

In Unit 1, children will be exploring and learning all about families and the many different ways family members relate to and help one another. Through the Story Time books, children will hear about a boy who help his family take care of his baby sister, a boy who realizes how much he has grown when a new baby arrives, a girl who behaves badly when she wants attention, and a lonely stuffed bear who finds a new friend. Besides listening to stories children will begin to recognize initial sounds in words and identify rhyming words as they build vocabulary and comprehension skills. They will also be participating in a variety of music, poetry, mathematics, science and art activities during center time and small groups.
The Following are several of the books the children will be exposed to over the next few weeks. Please check your child's classroom blog for more specific activities.
