We continued learning about Community Helpers.
A local police officer visited our class and explained the duties of his job.
He was wonderful with the little ones, taking the time to explain how he uses all the equipment and answering all the questions everyone had.
The little ones were totally enthralled.
We made these police cars by painting paper plates blue,
then cutting the bottom off and cutting two triangle shapes at the top.
We added a siren, windows, star, and wheels.
The littles loved them.
Another job we discussed and role played was that of a veterinarian. Everyone was so excited.
They picked an animal and filled out a well check or illness sheet. They took the animal's temperature, heartbeat, pulse, looked in the ears, and gave a shot, if needed.
Ans, last but not least, we took a brief break from our community helper theme to listen to 'The Cat in the Hat' read to us this week.
It was fantastic! The cat captured everyones attention for a full 30 minutes. Gotta love kids getting into books. :)
I hope you had a fabulous week.
Thanks for reading! Have a great day. :)
