Before You Know Kindness A novel by Chris BohjalianFor ten summers, the Seton family-all three generations-met at their country home in New England to spend a week together playing tennis, badminton, and golf, and savoring gin and tonics on the wraparound porch to celebrate the end of the season. In the eleventh summer, everything changed. A hunting rifle with a single cartridge left in the chamber wound up in exactly the wrong hands at exactly the wrong time, and led to a nightmarish accident that put to the test the values that unite the family-and the convictions that just may pull it apart.Before You Know Kindness is a family saga that is timely in its examination of some of the most important issues of our era, and timeless in its exploration of the strange and unexpected places where we find love.As he did with his earlier masterpiece, Midwives, Chris Bohjalian has written a novel that is rich with unforgettable characters-and absolutely riveting in its page-turning intensity.

Photographic Learning Cards Can Help Increase
Early Literacy and Language Development
Children who are learning a new language can build their vocabulary by matching realistic photos to real objects. All of the following games and activities can be used for preschool through grade 2 children; children who are learning a new language; and children with special needs:
1. Play “Name It!” Show the children a photo card. Ask them to name the object and/or find and point to the real object.
2. Play “Yes and No” games. Show a photo and say the correct or incorrect word – or say the function, such as, “the cow can fly?” The children answer with “yes or no.”
3. Play “Describing Games.” Place the cards in a box or bag. A child picks a card and then describes as much as possible about the picture. For example, “This is a bear. It is brown. It has 2 ears.”
4. Play “Can You Guess?” Ask a child to pick a card and not show it to anyone else. The child describes how the object is used (or the child may choose to pantomime the clues). The other children guess what is pictured on the card.
5. Play “What Does Not Belong?” Place three to four pictures (for example: apple, banana, grapes, kite) in front of the children. The children are to choose the picture that does not belong and explain why the remaining cards belong together.
6. Use the cards for “Sorting and Classifying” activities (foods, furniture, clothing, actions, toys, etc.).
7. Play “Listen Carefully.” Place several cards in a line. Offer clues or descriptions about one of the cards and have the children guess which card is being described.
8. Use the photo cards for “Storytelling” and “Sequencing” activities.
9. Play “What’s Missing?” Show the children four or five cards. Have children close their eyes while you remove a card. The children guess which card is missing. As the children’s skill level grows, increase the number of cards and/or remove more than one card.
10. Make “Classroom Big Books” using photo cards. Tape each photograph to a large piece of poster board. Have the children dictate short stories about
each of the pictures. Name the people in each picture. Talk about what they are doing. Discuss how they might be feeling. To finish the book, punch holes along the side of each page and bind them together with yarn.
11. Practice “High-Frequency Words” by writing words such as, “I like the . . .“ on index cards and place them in a pocket chart. Have the children practice reading
the words and then place a photo card noun in the final position of the sentence. (Examples: I like the wagon. I like the lamp. I like the hat.)
12. Students can make “Cut-Up Sentence Books.” Use a scrapbook or 3-ring binder to create the book. Tape a
photo card onto a piece of construction paper. Under each photo create cut-up words (see illustration) to form a sentence about each photo. The children will enjoy “reading” this classroom book over and over again.
13. Build “Bulletin Boards” with photo card captions. Print the captions on card stock and then tape them below the appropriate photograph.
