The kids did an amazing job this morning at our Veteran’s Day assembly. Everyone sat quietly and respectfully throughout the entire assembly. I am so proud of our friends.
This week’s pre-academic skills are: letter/sound Kk; number 11; shape circle; color red. Please review these with your child. You can go on letter/number/shape/color hunts around your house and community. Discuss colors and shapes in your food, clothes, home, vehicle, books, etc. We will continue to learn about Community Helpers and their roles in helping us where we live. We will be reading many different books that describe different jobs. Some will be teacher made books and some will be published books. Talk to your child about your job and what you do to support our community.Our Community Helpers unit will have a large focus on fire safety.
Last week we introduced calling 911 in an emergency and talked about different emergency situations; practiced “stop, drop and roll”, and practiced crawling under smoke. We will continue to focus on these skills until Thanksgiving break. Please talk to your child about your fire safety plan at home. At my house, we practice fire drills just like at school. I talk to my children about where to meet (Granddaddy’s big building), that they can go outside without a grown up, to not take anything with them, they don’t need shoes or a jacket, and to never go back inside until a firefighter tells them it’s ok. We also talk about yelling “here I am” if we are stuck somewhere and a firefighter is looking for them in the house. During a fire children get scared and will often hide. It is critically important that your child understand that even though a firefighter in full gear looks scary, they are there to help. Please make fire safety a regular conversation at your home.
As always, please take time to review the weekly Coyote Courier
