In the month of June, we will be discussing and identifying some community workers. Community workers all work together to make our lives better and easier. We teach and instill in our children daily that we all should work together and help each other. This is exactly what community workers do. We will not only discuss team work and helping, we will also get a chance to teach our children some helpful tips in emergency situations. While it is important that our children understand to avoid strangers, it is also important to prepare our children for any situations they may find themselves in. By introducing and identifying community helpers and their uniforms, such as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics, we can help them to understand which strangers in an emergency situation are there to help and bring them to safety.
This month each of the children will have different jobs weekly. This will help children to better understand the importance and concept of team work and individual contributions.
