Teacher: Let´s pretend we are doctors.
2- Cutouts: Explain to the class that people dress as the different professions. Use the cutouts for this activity.
I also created a game. I glued a craft stick behind each card . The students will match the community helper to their transportation card.
7. Pocket Chart: I bought this pocket chart long time ago and hardly ever make any activities to go with it. I included ambulance, police car, fire truck, and bus. Use it to review colors and transportation vocabulary.

We often try to guide our children through life’s tricky lessons, but I often find that children teach me -- about priorities, patience, laughter and more. They’ve also taught me that a lesson learned is best when shared. It’s in this spirit that our #LessonsFromAKid digital quilt campaign was born.
Participants can submit their answers all month long on our website, and may see their lessons featured on our Facebook and Twitter pages. They also will have the chance to win $50 Publix gift cards.
The process is simple:
1. Think about what lesson a kid has taught you.
2. Submit a short personal/original quote (you can add a photo if you wish) by clicking here: http://bit.ly/1fbEG2j
3. The Children’s Movement of Florida will collect submissions and will create custom images like those shown below, and post to their Facebook page. If your image is posted, you will be notified.
4. Make sure to “like” and “share” your link with friends and family, as $50 gift cards will be awarded to the images with the highest number of “shares” by the Feb. 28th.
All submissions will be compiled into a digital quilt, to be featured on Pinterest. In addition to keeping us warm, over time quilts have served as a means to tell a story, share lessons and preserve knowledge for generations to come. Help showcase how children can be true teachers by participating in this special project!
