So I’ve been late to drop off TWICE this week. Not because I overslept or was having a bad hair day. But because my toddler is literally obsessed with buses and insisted that I follow a bus several blocks passed her daycare. I’m not sure where the interest came from, but vehicles (she just got over planes) has been her thing for quite some time. Seriously- does anyone else have a kid who runs outside to greet the garbage man? Or who anxiously awaits for the postman to deliver a package? Well, with her new found love for the community I thought it would be fitting to bring out a new themed resource to help reinforce her learning this week.
Community Helpers Preschool Lesson Plans
|This is my weekly community helpers preschool theme lesson plan. It’s great for an at a glance look at what activities we will be doing throughout the week.|
Here are a few of our favorite activities to use in this unit:
Community Helpers Preschool Activities
I love when you can find a fun way to incorporate reading skills into lessons. This activity was one of those! You simply cut the stamps and match its initial sound to the correct letter envelope! Easy peasy, with loads of nonstop fun and engagement!
My little ones handwriting is going to be a work in progress for quite some time, so I usually try to incorporate some writing into our units. This activity was great for her because it gave her the extra support by letting her trace the names of the community helpers without the frustration of doing it all completely by herself.
We played this letter recognition activity all week long. It was definitely a favorite in our house and will be in yours too. We crumbled up the lettered trash cans and used motor skills to pick them up. Then, we did some letter recognition by identifying them on the worksheet and dabbing them with the bingo dauber! Seriousy, so fun! I got our claw grabber from 5 Below. Here’s a similar one on Amazon.
