How our book is incorporated into our day:
Our family book is part of our floor resources, often on a shelf for the children to access.
After the morning play session, in the lead up to lunch, we will often sit with the class and the family book. The children love to play call and response games.
“Name your friend?” “Who are they with?” ” Let’s name the family member, Mum, Dad, Nanny etc” The options are endless and the children really enjoy seeing themselves and their family in the book!
At the end of each day we display the book, with a photo of a family beside the floor book for the families to see at pick up time. Often as they are leaving, the children will be chatting about their friends and the book !!!
