Two Days In a Row!!! :)

This makes day number two of posting on my blog!  Yay for me! :)

As I mentioned yesterday, this week our kindergarten classes at my school are learning about community helpers.  To be honest, the first few weeks of school, our units consist of mostly reading about the topics.  Back to school time is chaotic insane, and our sweet babies just learning to come to school.  Our units tie into learning routines, procedures, how to be a good friend, getting to know you, etc.  Our first big unit is our apple unit, which is next week.  We have TONS of fun stuff planned for that...  But back to community helpers...

We have been focusing mainly on police officers and firefighters.  Today, the assistant chief from our local department came to talk to the three kindergarten classes on what he does in a day.  And the kids also...drum to see his police car.  Here are a couple of pictures:

My babies loved it!

Funny story of the day though...  One of my sweeties was standing back from the police car with his hands covering his eyes.  I thought for sure that when Mr. Policeman set off the sirens that he had gotten scared.  I asked him what was wrong, and, in his deep, southern twang said, "I don't like that car.  It's a FORD!!!"  :)  Those kids crack me up! :)

I'll post some pictures of our apple activities starting next week.  I am really excited to share them with you!

School has been in session for almost a month, and I have yet to update my blog. :)  My professional goal of keeping my blog updated has not been too successful so far, but I am working on it!  

This week, we are learning about community helpers.  I am so excited to have a real police officer visit our classroom tomorrow, and on Friday, a real firefighter will be visiting our class.  I'm sure my Kindergarten Kids will be PUMPED to see them, not to mention get to see their car and truck. :)

I'm really hoping to get some pictures of things we've done in class on here ASAP.  

Check back next week for our first big unit--Apples!
