WOW... We have had such a great week! We got to see Jack Hartmann Wednesday AND had Career Day today (see next two posts).
This week we learned all about community helpers. This is one of my favorite units! It's so much fun to talk about all the cool people who help us in our community and see how the kids perceive each of these community helpers. I wish we had more time to focus on each career, but we did talked about quite a few. During theme time, we made tools and things so we could "be" each community helper. We made some cute really things and we made at least one thing that was what you'd say was an epic fail...definitely a learning experience. I want to do a lot more with this unit next year. Since I have all or most of my center things prepared, I can focus more on that next year. Check out all the fun we had this week...
Scientist...experimenting on an alien.

Ok... the next two pictures were what we made for dentists...
The first one is what I wanted them to look like, the second one is how they turned out.
It was super rushed and unstructured. Needless to say, I will think this one through a bit more next year. :)
