Branching Out Theme of the Week: My Home & Neighborhood

When you travel by the same buildings and things every day, you almost forget to notice them. This week we will talk about important things in our neighborhood that help us and each other. There are fire companies, schools, churches and hospitals as well as stores, libraries and doctor’s offices. When you walk, ride or drive around town, notice these places with your child and talk about them. What do people do in those buildings and how is it helpful. Why is it important to be helpful? We will also talk about the people we see in our neighborhoods and how we can be more neighborly to them. Together, we make great places to live, work and play.
