Continuing on our unit about learning about communities and community helpers we’ve been learning about jobs not only in our community but elsewhere.  We started out talking about how students can go wherever they choose to go and be who they choose to be and we reread Oh The Places You’ll Go.  Students colored, cut, and glued pictures of community helpers; and matched them with their related mode of transportation.  For writing students wrote about what they wanted to be when they grew up.

For the past few weeks we have been learning about our community and the different people that are in it.  We’ve also been learning about how other communities are different from each other, and about the different jobs in our neighborhood and throughout the world.

We started off the unit discovering our neighborhood and the important places in it.  We then made our own individual map of Shaktoolik as well as a whole class map of our neighborhood.  We took colored pictures of places in our neighborhood and labelled the map with markers.

Later on in our unit we started learning about people and helpers in our neighborhood.  Many of our Guided reading books taught us of the different people who helped us, we watched a few people in our neighborhood songs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2bbnlZwlGQ), and designed our own neighborhood in the building block center.
