Fire Truck Fun!

We have had such a busy week with our “Community Helpers” theme!  We made “garbage” sculptures (in honor of the AWESOME waste disposal men and women who make our community clean) with play-doh and some recyclables!  Your little ones loved this activity and spent a long time with it, fine motor skills at their finest 🙂

Next up, we talked about another community helper-The dentist!  We made a yucky, yellow “tooth” all clean with white paint…painted on with a real toothbrush!  Here’s the little ditty we sang to go along with this activity…sing it with them at home while brushing their real teeth!  It makes it so much more fun 🙂

(sing to the tune of “Row, row, row your boat”)

Next up…Firemen!  These community helpers make such a difference, and we have talked about how they rescue, fight fires, and drive those big red trucks with loud sirens.  We have been reading a fun book all about firemen at circle time each morning.  Then, thanks to Ms. Silvia in Doobonim 1, we got to see a real fire truck and meet fire men today!  The little ones loved it!
