Teaching and learning from preschoolers.
Hello, thank you for this post and the work you do on this wonderful blog. My moms' group is visiting a fire station this week with our toddlers (just a small group of about 8 toddlers). I was wondering whether you had any ideas for what would be an appropriate and much-appreciated thank you gift for the handful of firefighters who will be giving us a short tour of their station. Many thanks for your insights and ideas again!Palo Alto Mom
Hey Palo Alto Mom! We usually just make a giant "thank you" card that they can hang on the station wall. We take a big piece of mat board and the kids spend some time drawing pictures for the firefighters. Then we make construction paper fire trucks and glue a couple on the board. Then I help the kids make a list of everything they learned ("Stop, drop and roll!" "Go TO the firefighters," etc.) which I write on strips of paper that we then also glue on. It often takes us a week to get it the way we want it. The firefighters I know, are particularly happy when they know that the kids have learned something. If the adults want to give a gift, they all like food.
Thank you! This really helps me figure out what to do. We will do as you suggest: artwork card from the kids and perhaps a gift card from the local taqueria (because I was going to bake (honestly) but it didn't happen and the tacos are going to taste a lot better anyway. :-) ). I really appreciate your response. Thank you once again.~ Palo Alto Mom
