This week we dived into another guided inquiry, community and community helpers.
The FDK Personal & Social Expectation is:
3.1 recognize people in the community and talk about what they do
3.2 recognize places and buildings within their community, both natural and human-made, and talk about their functions
First my ECE led a discussion on what students saw and where students went on Halloween.
This led to some of the students using the words neighbourhood and community.
Then they discussed what a community is, what we do in a community and things we see in a community.
On the second day we brainstormed people who help us in our community.
They knew a lot of community helpers!
Then I read these two books and added the jobs that were introduced in these books to the "learned" portion of the chart.
After we developed a list of community helpers, we voted on which community helper they want to learn about the most. Suprisingly the top 3 were teacher, bus driver and veterinarians.
We will start with their wonders on teachers on Monday.
Stay tuned ;)
