So, the last you heard from me I was having trouble controlling some of the children in my class. Things have gotten somewhat better – but there are still about 4 (sometimes 5) children I’m working with – out of 14 I guess that’s not too bad! October is the month I choose to learn about Community Helpers. One of my father’s is a paramedic and he came in his uniform and with his stethoscope to talk to the children about his job. They were super excited to be able to listen to their lungs and heartbeats! He also read two stories to them and gave them all a “super special band-aide from the ambulance”! They LOVED that part!
Then the police came! One of my fathers is a policeman and he wanted to come talk to the children about safety. He also wore his uniform and brought his police car along! The children LOVED that! He even let them get in the front and backseat of the car! I totally wish I had taken my camera to school that day – those would have been super cute pictures! He also gave them a badge sticker to wear – and I have never seen my children so excited to get a sticker before!
