All in the Family

Hey yall! Natalie here from Teachery Tidbits.

My kiddos have started learning about a tricky little thing called fact families.
Anyone else's kiddos struggle with these???
I wanted to make it fun and interesting for them, so I started out by introducing them to the Fact Family.
We discussed how the Fact Family are kind of snobby and only like to be with themselves. They don't like to let anyone else into their house.
We talked about how, since Daddy is the biggest, he will always be the biggest number. Mommy will be the middle number and Baby will be the smallest number.
We practiced a ton with these family cards that I made. Click on the picture below to snag them!
After lots and lots of practice on fact families, they are finally starting to get it! They really connect with the daddy, mommy, and baby {or doggy}.
But then we decided that they needed a house to live in!
So, naturally, we made them some!

They turned out so cute! I love how they are all just a little bit different :)
We didn't use any patterns, just kinda winged it, but it worked out great! do you teach your kiddos about fact families?
