Unit: Lesson 1: Families, Neighborhoods, Communities

Books:

We'll read these books and talk about how many different families make up a community. We will also talk about how we all work together to help the community.
Talk about how we in a family work together and help each other how we each have a role to play. I'll also take the kids on a walk around our neighborhood pointing out places of interest and talking about how our neighbors live in these homes. Homes come in many different sizes and shapes. In our particular neighborhood we have apartments, mobile homes, single story and double story homes.
