WHO ARE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD? learning about community helpers

During this month we have been learning lots of things about community helpers and we have also turned our home center into a doctor's office thank to the contribution of some parents and friends.

These are two really cool videos to work on community helpers:

We used community helpers cards and descriptions to practice first understanding to then ask the kids to say their own descriptions for the rest to guess.

Lots of parents came to class to talk about their jobs and it was FANTASTIC. Everybody was very excited and we discovered some jobs we knew nothing about.

Here are some examples:

3d printer engineer, architect, hair dresser, florist.....

During these weeks or main work was done at stations so here is an example of the things we have been doing:

Kids have been doing activities from this packet. A vet's puzzle, things that are good and bad for your teeth, and a doctor's bag with all the things they use to treat us.

- Mystery bag: we have 4 bags with magnetics letters inside. Kids try to build the community helpers' word to then glue a picture to check understanding:

i am so impressed with this kid's ability to hear the sounds even though this is his first year in a bilingual school.
He said "Carmen look this is wrong because i don't need the a letter"

- Community helpers super sentences:
using three dice with subject verb and object we build a sentence and then draw it to check understanding.

 Our favorite activity so far is our DOCTOR' S OFFICE: check it out and see how the kiddos have become fantastic doctors and nurses:


This past two weeks we had the Halloween party at school and we worked on the Room on the Broom story which is one of my favorites:

I told them the magnificent room on the broom story and then we sequenced it using picture cards.

We made a story map about the story:

Using the kids directions speaking english we draw a witch on the board to later on complete a labeling activity:

we love watching the Room on the Broom movie:

This year we tried sweet sounds of kinder fantastic book companion packet.

Among other things we did this adorable sequencing and designing activities:

This are some of the videos we love watching during halloween:

As Asun in Spanish used Halloween to work on bones through skeletons our party costume was clear.

Kids at home made the bodies with their parents using the template we gave them and in class we design the masks. They looked lovely and we enjoyed a lot our time with the rest of the kindergarteners trick or treating and dancing:
 the four year olds came to sing a song a get their treats.
 then we went to their class to sing our song and of course receive our treats:

 one happy skeleton helper:
 we were the first ones to arrive at the party:
 then everyone came and we enjoyed our halloween songs and dancing.
