Community Workers!

This week we have been learning all about community workers. We learned about the different types of community workers and discussed the ways that they care for our community. We created a story about community workers and how they help our community! The students were excited to create and share their book with you!

Here is our little bird tale book about community workers:

We took a trip to the fire department to learn about all about a firefighter's job. We had a chance to tour the fire truck, spray the fire hose and learn all about fire safety tips and plans! Here we are learning all about the fire truck and fire fighting equipment!

We had the chance to spray the fire hose that is used for grass fires!

The firefighters taught us how to stay low and go and to stop, drop, and roll!

We got to see a firefighter in full uniform!

We decided it would be a tough job to be a firefighter but it is a rewarding way to help our community. We made our own firefighter hats after visiting the station. 

Later in the week we had a visit from a Spirit Lake police officer. He taught us how to be safe and what  to do in case of an emergency! We even had a chance to see his police car and sirens!

To wrap up a great week in kindergarten we had some exciting news! On Friday our nine iPads arrived and we could not wait to get started using them. During math we had some time to explore the different learning apps on the iPad!
