What we are learning and doing
This week we have extended our study of friends and family to include community helpers—police officers, fire-fighters, doctors, teachers, postal workers, and much more. We are talking about their roles in the neighborhood and in our lives. We have matched community helpers to the equipment they use, played Bingo by listening to a description of a helper or their tools, and have read books such as Neighborhood Helpers. Our pretend center has become a Veterinarian Clinic with various outfits and doctor kits. Next door is the Post Office where letters have been sorted and delivered. We will create a fire truck out of shapes on Friday.
Books We've Read:
Dot the Fire Dog by Lisa Desimini
