We have been talking about our families in the preschool.
Who are the people in your family? Does everyone in your family live in the same house? Which members live in a different house? The children all agreed that Grandmothers and Grandfathers live in a different house.
We had a great discussion about just what grandparents are.
Ashby told us ,"My mommy has a mommy and she is her baby"
We set up a provocation inviting the children to create one or more family members using loose materials.
Compositions are a great way for children to make representations that they can easily manipulate and change.
We took photographs or their compositions so that we might revisit them another time and provide opportunity for extension activities.
