Big Sur

Hello from Big Sur!

This week we learned all about community helpers and different kinds of jobs. We even talked about what we wanted to be when we grow up. Make sure to check out our class list on our door!

During work boards this week:

We dressed up as our favorite community helper!


Our friends used syringes to squirt paint all over our papers.


We used ink pads to make our fingerprints, and then used magnifying glasses to investigate them.

We matched letters on band-aids to letters on bear’s boo-boos.


Our friends traced community helper words on white boards.


We pretended to be doctors and made sure all of our babies were healthy.


We pretended we were construction workers and built a town.


Our friends also pretended to be bakers and “baked cookies” using play-doh and cookie cutters.

We had a blast pretending we had jobs this week. Have a wonderful weekend!
