Last week we finished up our units on fire safety and community helpers. We made flip books to illustrate what kind of community helpers we can be and then we wrote what we want to be when we grow up. Students practiced adding details to their pictures by using community helpers cut out as a basis for our pictures.
This week we’ve been talking about helpers in our community and the tools they use to do their job. We watched the Community Helpers video on Brain Pop Jr. Then we picked different community helpers and sorted their tools.
We also read the story Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann and students retold the story during free choice centers with paper bag puppets that we made.
