Activities & Lessons
Download our letter to you with tips and suggestions for extending this week’s activities with your family. Have a great week!
Welcome to Family Time! We’ll provide five days of reading and learning activities designed to engage your child in an exploration of family and spending time together.
It’s Monday, so let’s read about family members!
This Is My Family
Jen has a father, a mother, a grandfather, a grandmother, and a sister. Do you want to meet them?
- Download This Is My Family
Discuss the book: What does Jen’s grandfather do? What does Jen’s sister do? Who is in your family?
It’s Tuesday, so let’s watch a video!
Watch the video Training Wheels to see how a girl learns to ride her bike with a lot of practice and help from her dad.
It’s Wednesday, so let’s write!
Make a Family Book
Fold paper to make a book, and ask an adult to help you staple it. Write and draw about your family, using This Is My Family as a guide.

It’s Thursday, so let’s research family words!
Words About Families
- Reread This Is My Family to find these words: mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, and sister.
- How does Jen use these words in sentences? Use them in sentences of your own.
- Find these words in other books or or websites.
It’s Friday, so let’s create!
Make a Family Picture
Draw a picture of your family and label it. Use Jen’s picture on page 16 of This Is My Family as a model.
