Family Unit- My 2-3 yr olds pasted boy and girl cut outs on construction paper. Then, we counted each person in the family and I filled in the sentence. I did this as a whole group activity. You could write mom, dad, brother, and sister on the cut outs.

Aujourd'hui, les oeufs de Pâques ont été remplacés par un bébé tout sale qui ne demande qu'à se faire laver (au contraire de mes enfants). J'ai simplement appliqué de-ci de-là de la gouache brune.
