“My students love to share about themselves and their families. The visuals in this resource helped them further share during this unit. Thank you for creating!” -Christine I.
“My students really enjoyed learning and discussing families with each other at the beginning of the year. The vocabulary/picture cards were so helpful in our writing center and it allowed my students to share more about themselves and their lives as they shared stories. I also love the themed activities I could use in other centers like math! ” -Keep Growing with Kindergarten (TpT Seller)
