One of my favorite units in social studies is community helpers. We did this unit back in March, but I just recently took down the bulletin board. It was so cute and I just couldn't make myself take it down. We spend an afternoon having "Career Day". Various people from the community come and talk to the first graders about their jobs. After Career Day I have my students tell me what they want to be when they grow up and then we create these super, cute people! Here are several that turned out great!
I absolutely LOVE teaching and think first grade is totally awesome! I am married to the most amazing husband in the world, who is also a teacher and coach. I enjoy going to his football games, shopping, swimming, crafting, and traveling.
