Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?

Those of us who grew up watching “Sesame Street” most certainly remember the characters and Muppets singing “Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?”  Each year as we begin our unit on Community Helpers, we introduce the children to those beloved video clips and they are soon singing along and discussing the people who work in their own neighborhoods and communities.  During the week, we learn about many different professions and the tools that people use to perform their specific jobs.  As a culminating activity, the students come to school dressed for their future dream jobs.  There are so many opportunities and career choices these days that it will be interesting to check-in again in 20 years to see just what career paths these incredible curious little minds have chosen.  Here is a peek at our week:
