After using my Careers and Economics Unit over the last couple of weeks, we ended it on Friday with Career Day!
My kiddos were adorable!! Some of them came dressed up as their future career or brought in some accessories that they would use for their career. One little boy wore his new Easter outfit which was a suit with vest and tie. ADORABLE!!! :) I would love to post their pictures, but I feel funny doing that on here so you'll just have to picture the cutest first graders you have ever seen and that would be my kiddos!
My suit boy wants to be a librarian. All I heard in the hallway before they came in was, What are you?!?!
Before Career Day, my kiddos had to research their future careers. I found a great website and linked it to my school website...my kiddos can navigate my school website really well. They had to find 3 things they will do and 3 things they will need.
My kiddos did such a wonderful job on this! I gave them some time to search through the website first and find a career that they were interested in. Then, they completed their research paper and later worked on their final career reports.
They had so much fun sharing what they learned about their careers on Friday. Here are some pictures of their reports and the hats and badges we made:
This little girl wants to be a dancer. She wrote, "Three important things I will do are express ideas, dance in ballet and work in musical shows. Three important things I will need are a song to dance to, an outfit, and background dancers." Background dancers....how funny is that! :)
She wants to be a teacher. She was my Mini Me on Friday....even wearing the same shirt supporting our high school football team as I did!
This girl wants to be a doctor. I loved her picture!
This little boy wants to be a reporter. He wrote, "Reporters gather information and write news stories. These stories appear in newspapers. They also observe the scene and do interviews. Three important things I will need are a college degree, school newspapers, and good experiences." Isn't that great?!?!
These are the hats and badges we made. They loved them!
Okay, enough bragging.....for now!
Hope everyone has a great week. Come back and visit on Wednesday for some BIG NEWS!! :)
