Students will write a narrative that describes a special memory between themselves and a parent. When finished, the students can share their writing and then add to a classroom bulletin board.
Create memory strings with your students. With their parent’s help, have students collect buttons from special garments and bring them to class. Give each student a piece of string and show them how to put the buttons on the string. When everyone is done, give students time to share the different memories represented on their string.
