Clip to ScrapBook #3

I think that there probably are some books that you will have to be much more careful about this year, but I think this is one where the meaning will stay the same. When you write your letter, just explain that it's about a raccoon and her loved one and then have the discussion with your class, like the poster above said.

You might as well also take that opportunity with your kiddos to let them know that when you say "family" you mean loved ones. Maybe switch some of what you were planning on doing this first week to talk all about what a family is.

(Make sure you address all letters to "Families" instead of parents)
