more on families

August 21, 2009

This week we painted a tree for our family tree (a family tree for a two year old is really just a tree with pictures of family members taped to it).  But we also had a good conversation about generations, and how our extended family is related to one another (by asking, “Who is Daddy’s brother?”  “Who is Mom’s mom?”  etc.).  The family theme has kept both of our interest for several weeks (which is key!), and seems to be going well.

We also checked out and are reading “What did Mommy do before you?” by Abby Levine.  As we are reading it, though, I have filled in some of their story with more of my own (such as, Mom got a degree and had a career.  I didn’t go straight from high school to marriage to babies, like the book says).  Even so, it is a great starting point for learning more about families and how they are created.

There are two other cute ideas for a family-themed month.  I hope to get to post them (along with the link with their original source) soon.
