Urban Suburban Rural, This Week and a Freebie!

Wow do my kids love a project!  This week we made and labeled urban, suburban and rural areas.  They loved it!  Such a simple idea.  We took 9x13 construction paper and folded it into three.  They then turned the top into a city, the middle into a town and created a farm on the bottom. After they were complete, they labeled the areas as urban, suburban and rural.  My class has never been so quiet!  They were ALL into their work and they turned out Soo Cute!  Take a look at these hard workers!

This week we will continue talking about our communities and will talk about how small our community is when we look at the world.  We'll  introduce new vocabulary Earth, continent, country, state, etc.  We be using our My Place in The World packet.  You can find it here.

This week is also the week we talk about fire safety. We have linked up with Classroom Freebies again and have shared our Fire Safety Packet.  We will be using it to make a class book, do a safety sort, illustrate stop, drop and roll and share safety tips with others.  You can find that freebie here.  We hope you enjoy it!
