Toddler Playschool: C is for Community Helpers Lesson Plan {free printable}

Pin It
Exploring Community Helpers with toddlers and preschoolers is one of my very favorite themes.  With the wide variety of individuals that help run or cities and towns, it opens up so many avenues for exploration and discovery. Below you can find our todder lesson plan for community helpers such as firefighters, mail carriers, librarians, and more.

This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

Use these tools in different ways
Each and every day.
5 Little Firefighters
Five little firefighters standing in a row.
Ring goes the bell, down the pole they go.
They jump on the engine and put out the fire.
Now they're back home, but my, they're tired.
These are My Glasses

C Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
