Background For Teachers:
The children will come from families with varying characteristics. This makes a wonderful opportunity to explore what a family is and how it can look different. A natural gathering of data can occur at this time. Be careful to stress that each family is unique and children should not be made to feel that one family type is better or worse than another child’s family. Such gathering of data can illustrate the diversity of families.
Children can also write about families, since it is a topic of personal interest of which they have concrete knowledge. Many center activities can be designed around the idea of “families” to apply language and numeric skills.

Invitation to Learn
Ask the children to explain how they sorted the family pictures. Answers will show the level of sophistication of the skill of sorting.
Look at the children’s writing to evaluate concepts they already know, such as beginning sounds, ending sounds, capitals and lowercase letters, or spaces in between words, etc.
Listen to the children as they talk about what roles or responsibilities members
of the family have. You can gather oral language and anecdotal notes at this
time as well.
