When I Grow Up..

Hello Everyone!! So I wanted to show you all a little idea that I did with my little ones today. Our weekly theme this week is Cool Jobs. So all of our stories are about different jobs you can have when you are a "grown up." haha. Here's what I did, I traced out paper dolls for each student and had them complete a writing activity- "When I Grow up."
I had my kiddies write what they want to be when they grow up. I then told them that they had to decorate the doll in clothes that they would wear in the job they want to have. And let me tell you- their imaginations soared! I have future presidents, jet pilots, pop stars, and TEACHERS in my class. I didn't give them much direction and they did SO GREAT with it!
Here is some of my student's work:

Construction Worker
 Painter
Librarian



Leave me some love & let me know what you guys think! :)
