Happy Friday, everyone! So, I definitely wasn’t planning to blog tonight about my community helper unit, but I started it this week with my kiddos, and had something happen that gave me a good laugh.
Some background: the unit starts off by teaching the kids about the difference between wants and needs (since community helpers are people who help us get our wants and needs).
