Community Helpers-Who Can Help Me?-Shooting Star-Feb. 19th-22nd


Welcome to our second to the last blog of this month.

This week’s highlight was our role play as part of our assessment entitled, Who Can Help Me? We set up a hospital for doctors, a fire station for firefighters, and a house for patients and injured people in the class and prior to our role play, we recapitulated our past lesson on how doctors and firefighters help the community and who need their help. Shooting Star class raised their hands quietly and gave their answers. After the recap, the class discussed how the role play should be done and we divided the class into two groups, each group with nine students. The teachers wrote down on a piece of paper in advance the kinds of characters that students were going to play like firefighter, doctor, patient, injured person and folded them. Then, the first group did the role play first while the second group was watching them how they carried it out. Each one picked out a piece of paper and went straight to their station-fire station, hospital, or house to prepare their tools. The teacher then showed them a picture that shows a certain situation like a person with a high fever, feel sick and vomit, the house is on fire, stuck on top of the building, under the building in an earthquake and the teacher said, Ready, action. This was to assess their understanding what to do, what number to call and who to ask help from when situations like these take place and how community helpers should respond. The assessment was successful. Students didn’t only enjoy playing their role, but they also showed how far they have learned from this unit. They knew that for fire, ambulance, and emergency rescue, they need to call 119. For sick and injured people, they need doctors. If the house is on fire and other rescue incidents, they need firefighters and doctors. Shooting Star class has shown clear understanding of who to ask help from when certain situations take place. Bravo!

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone.
