Family Yarns: Tied Up With Letters and Cooking

Family Yarns: Tied Up With Letters and Cooking


We write to express emotion, communicate information, and connect with others. Who better to express to, communicate with, and connect with than our families? In a familial adventure, students write friendly letters to relatives, expressing admiration and asking questions. Students dive into their family history, learning about their origins, traditions, and values. Students involve themselves in the family scene as they explore how to communicate with and remember those they love most.
