Community Workers

Reading and Social Studies
Our community worker unit started by reading the story Firefighter in our reading book. We then learned about other services that were provided in our community and the people who provided those services. The students also learned about goods that people made in our community. The students were asked to brainstorm people in the community that provided goods and the people in the community that provided services. The students then chose the job that fit them best. As a take-home project, the students decorated a paper version of themselves dressed as if they were going to their job. The students also created a business card to go with their job. The students then presented their completed project to the class. The projects were amazing!

Thank you to Mrs. D. Lue Pann for sharing her resources with us.

Welcome to Seussville!

This is our Dr. Seuss inspired mural. There is Noun Town, Verb Village, Adjective Avenue, and Adverb Alley. First, we discussed all the nouns that could be found in a community and made them to fit our Dr. Seuss theme. Then we listed all the adjectives that would describe our people, places and things. Next, we brainstormed all the actions that were seen on our map. Last, we discussed where, when, and how all the actions could be done. The students really learned the parts of speech with this activity. Everyone loves to stop and read our mural. We learned while doing it and other students are learning as they stop and read!


March 2 is Dr. Seuss's birthday. In honor of his birthday, everyone is asked to read with their child on this day. Cuddle up and read with your child. They grow up too fast!
Aaron and Austin-19th birthday!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
