The goal of an inclusive space isn’t to make someone feel like a guest in a space for others. Instead, the should feel that they are truly part of the group. Preschool has a long history of using cute questionnaires like these for special days like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. The thing is our students come to us with all different family makeups, with grandparents as primary caregivers, with foster parents, with two moms. The different combinations are beautifully diverse just like the families we serve. While a gender-segregated questionnaire for preschool may work for you, (find my Mother’s Day one here) you may also need a more flexible option.
This inclusive special person questionnaire allows children to use the language they want for their special person. This also allows teachers to use this for all kinds of holidays. Additionally, you can use just as an every day dictation activity for your classroom. What a fun way to talk about families, special people we love and to take home. These simple little printables are a fun way to make connections with your students’ families too.
As Mother’s Day approaches I hope that you will consider how you plan to address it in your class and if a printable questionnaire for preschool that is more flexible and inclusive is just what you need.
