This week we explored different careers. I am very fortunate I am doing what I wanted to do when I grew up… Well not exactly, but I always wanted to be a teacher. I did think that I wanted to be a 4th grade teacher, my 4th grade teacher was my favorite teacher of all time! Her name was Mrs.Jones and she made you feel like you could accomplish anything, she was such a sweet, kind, loving person! So, even though life changed my plans a little I don’t regret it at all. When I lucked into my first preschool teaching job I fell in love with this age group. I can’t imagine doing anything else, I know I am very fortunate to have a job that I love so much. Owning my own preschool, I thought was such a far off dream, but when you have such an amazing support system and you are willing to put in the hard work anything is possible!!
Some of the careers we learned about this week were… Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Astronauts, Meteorologist, Oceanographers, Mail Carriers, Doctors and Veterinarians, . We made our own police badge and hat, we painted with “fire” and had a fire drill with a real firefighter and made it outside in record time! We did outer space finger painting, searched for ocean animals in a water sensory table, experimented with a cloud and made it rain, sat up a post office in our classroom and made letters and post cards to mail to our friends and family. We made an x-ray of our arm, pretended to be doctors and veterinarians, and used our dress up clothes to role play. We had a fun week! Next week our theme will be Art!
