 What makes me special and unique?

What feelings do I have and why?

Share a favorite story with your child about your child’s past. This could be a story about the first time your child did something new, a funny story about an experience or a time when your child made you proud. Make a poster about that special time. You may include actual photographs or you may draw about it. Write a small caption about what happened.

 

 

 

 

Create a feelings chart with your child. Have your child identify different feelings that they have and what makes them feel that way. Create a poster with your child and have your child draw a picture showing those feelings and what makes them feel that way. You can even take pictures of your child showing the different feelings and glue them to the poster.

What makes my class important and unique?

What makes my family important and unique?

Ask your child who they like to play with in our class? What do they like about that child? What is their favorite thing to do with that child? Then have your child draw a picture of themselves playing with their friend. Have them dictate to you what they enjoy doing with that child and write it down under the picture. Have them label themselves and their friend.

 

Ask your child to tell you about the members of the family. Draw a picture of your family and label the family members.

Make a poster with your child using pictures of your family celebrating special family traditions. Write down what your family’s tradition is and how you celebrate.
