Community Helper Theme:  The Nurse - Online Resources:
A nurse is a person who is trained to care for sick and injured people.

This is a good opportunity to review the topic of the nurse as a community helper. Present the main responsibilities of the nurse and how important their job is to the community.

Alphabet Activity > Letter N is for Nurse

* Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter N's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page (first presentation) or handwriting practice worksheet. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letters, and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

*Find the letter N's: Have the children find all the letter N's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.

*Coloring Activity
: Encourage the children to color the image in the coloring page or worksheet.
