Kindergarten students learn about safety through puppet shows

e-Connections Post

Kindergarten students at John Sloat, John Bidwell and Caroline Wenzel elementary schools learned about personal safety during a presentation by Kids on the Block, a puppet show presented to 4,000 students annually across the country.

The puppeteers, who are volunteers from the Assistance League of Sacramento, used a script to discuss such topics as how to avoid strangers and how to react safely in the case of fire (stop, drop and roll).

The show also emphasized the importance of children learning their own phone numbers and when/how to dial 9-1-1.

Established in 1990, Kids on the Block’s primary purpose is to let children know they are not alone, that it is all right to talk to a trusted adult and to seek guidance with problems such as bullying.
