Guess the Baby

"Guess the Baby" by Simon French and Donna Rawlins is a lovely picture book that I used when I had Year 1 a few years ago.

I plan to use it with my Year 2 class at the start of the year. It is a lovely way to get to know children better and it ties in really well with the Science Understanding focus we will have in Term 1: “Living things grow, change and have offspring similar to themselves.” (New Australian Curriculum)

You can check out the book via this link.

The children in the story are invited by their teacher to bring in photos of themselves as babies and they hold a competition to see who can “Guess the Baby”. The illustrations are lovely and the children in my class have always enjoyed the story.

The book will be used as a springboard for our own “Guess the Baby” competition within our class.

To show how much they have grown, I will get each child to measure their height with green streamer. We use these streamers to make a height chart wall display and top off each streamer with a patty case or cupcake liner with a little photo of each child glued in the centre to make a flower.

When I get around to making some resources to go with the book I will post them to my blog.

Now I have another goal ;-)
