Nicole set up this Family Tree project so families could share and
learn about each other.
She introduced it during circle time, explaining that the project
would be set up for the next several days and familes could
participate when they had an opportunity.
It didn’t take long for the children to start drawing the different
members in their families.
They were also encouraged to write the names of each family
Now we have this beautiful tree decorating our wall.
Thanks Nicole for another wonderful project.
An interesting conversation arose after this project was started.
We were singing a traditional song about families.
It goes like this...
"Come a' look a' see here's my mama
Come a' look a' see here's my papa
Come a' look a' see my brother tall
I love them all."
Because families come in all different shapes and sizes now,
how would you change this song to make it more inclusive?
