Who Are the People in your Neighborhood?

I am going to admit that when this song came on, I could sing it word.for.word.  I love Sesame Street.

For those of you that do community helpers as a theme, here are some math and literacy centers for you!  I’ll TRY to post more throughout the week as I finish them!

  8. I loved Sesame street growing up! MY favorite song was, "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12". Then they played that awesome 70's kinda jazzy music as the ball rolled around the pin ball machine? Yes, no? Anyone? Like I said I really liked sesame street. Never missed it.
    Anyways, super cute activity.

  45. This is a great set of centers for community helpers! Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us! We do this unit in the spring so I will definitely be getting these centers prepared soon so they are ready. As a special addition to our community helpers unit we have the local garbage company come visit us. They do a little presentation about safety around garbage trucks and then we go outside and kids get to learn about the truck. They love it!
    Thanks!!
