My student teacher continued our Community Helper unit with firefighters.
Our schema chart was interesting.  One student commented that firefighters "saved cats from trees."

One of morning charts-
Our bulletin board display with some writing-

 Finally, a visit from a firefighter (my student teacher's dad!).  We labeled the equipment and the students told him what to put on.

Officer Buckle and Gloria

LOVE this book!  Our unit of study for the next week is community helpers...actually I have a student teacher and it's her unit:)  One quick little activity was brainstorming tips in keeping safe (didn't get a photo of the chart) then, the class was separated into groups and they illustrated and wrote about their favorite safety tip.  We use bulletin board paper and the kids love it because they can "write big and draw big".

Our 100th Day Celebration

Back from SDE in San Marcus...I have lots of ideas rolling around in my head!  So, my class celebrated the 100th day of school a day late.  Our tradition is to pop 100 balloons.  Thanks to my husband and an air compressor, he had gotten this done by the time I got home from SDE :)
Each balloon has a number inside.  The kids must stay on their knees and sit on the balloons.  They collect their numbers in bags.  Then, we assemble a 100 chart with those numbers.
