Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

Tag Archives: Officer Buckle and Gloria

As we continued to learn about our community and the important people inside of our community we took a closer look at different important jobs. Since we are unable to do a field trip due to the pandemic, we took a virtual field trip to the post office and learned about the job of the mail carrier. As part of the virtual field trip we were able to click on interactive links, ask questions through a classroom chat function and learned vocabulary that is used in the post office.

For reading students practiced reading non-fiction emergent reader books that taught us about different community helpers. The All-Stars also partner read books to each other.

For math students worked on matching numbers to the correct quantity of square counters. Students practiced in partners making different sets based on color and side of the counter.

For read aloud we read the book Officer Buckle and Gloria and created paper bag puppets of Officer Buckle. Finally students cut and glued tools that matched the appropriate community helper.


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.
