With school starting and kids getting in a routine, I start thinking about all the different units and fun studies we will do in the next month. One of my favorites is the Community Workers week. FREE Community Workers printables activities MOREI love seeing them explore and talk about the different jobs around our community. This year I even hope to coordinate some fun field trips to the FireStation, a Dentist Office (which we’ll do in conjunction with our appointments), the Post Office and maybe the sanitation department! I’m so excited and can’t wait to explore those places as we study just what those people do.
