HOW MANY FEET IN THE BED FREE PRINTABLE


HOW MANY FEET IN THE BED?
Feet and bed pattern FREE!
This is one of my favorite books for family theme week and it goes perfect with the book, How Many Feet in the Bed? by Diane Johnston Hamm.
I printed a bed (get your free pattern below) and taped in on a cookie sheet. I then cut out some feet shapes (free pattern below). I attached some magnetic tape on the back of each foot.
I let each child come forward and place the number of feet in the bed that represents their families.

1. Count the number of feet. How many are boys? How many are girls?
2. Are there more boys or girls feet in your family?
3. Count the number of feet by 2's.
4. Graph the number of boy's and girl's feet in the class.

FAMILY TIES


This was a fun project. I used some scrapbook paper and cut out tie shapes. With a letter of explanation I sent it home for the families to decorate with family photos. Before hanging them on our door each child got to share all about their family. They loved it.

Note: I made these ties into a class book after they came down from the wall. A class favorite.

FIRST NAMES

A MY NAME IS ALICE


Saw this idea on Pinterest to go with the book A My Name is Alice and this is my class' results . The children cut and drew faces on their pictures and then dictated what they liked that started with the first letter of their name (OK lotsa help was needed here). But I think they turned out really cute.


HOW MANY LETTERS ARE IN MY NAME

CLASSIFICATION

We used our pictures to graph our hair color and we colored some eyes and graphed our eye color.


Family Classifying

We cut out pictures from magazines and classified them as parents or children. This was a lot harder tan I expected. Well not the classifying but the cutting. The following year I cut out a lot of pictures from magazine and let them choose the pictures and paste them in the proper category. Much better!

 

Family Tree


From Mrs. McD. kindergarten classroom.
This was a family at home project - the top row has the grandparents, middle row has the parents and the students aunts and uncles, and lower row has the student, bothers and/or sisters and cousins.
This tree is made with moss, leaves, and bark. Wow.


We painted our arms brown and hand green to make the tree. Then added die-cut apples to the tree - each apple has been programmed with a family member's name. We added a family photo to complete our family tree poster.
