This week we began our family study. The children reflected on how they spend time with their families and we discussed how each person’s family is unique. Through our inquiry a few children noted that their families, or their parents have come from different places. The children began finding their origins on a map, we will continue to investigate this strand next week.
As the children shared their family portraits they worked on presentation and communication skills. The audience proved to be good listeners who are beginning to formulate well-thought-out questions for the presenter. To support us is comparing the similarities and differences of each family we started working on our bar graph depicting the number of people in each family.
*Please remember this is a long weekend. School will reopen for students on Wednesday.
**** If anyone has a picture or artifact from your home country please let me know. It would be very helpful to our investigation.
