    Teachers prepare a big book in the style of "Brown bear, brown bear" for careers. For example, one page might say, " Carpenter, carpenter, what do you see? I see a singer looking at me." Pictures of the respective workers are pasted on the corresponding page.
    Teachers read this book with the children, commenting on the occupations in Spanish. In this way, students develop a working vocabulary of professions.
    A variety of spin off activities can be used to enhance the lesson. For example, students can combine art and writing skills by drawing pictures of each occupation mentioned and labeling them.

    Hi Tara19,

    What skills/knowledge did you wish to impart in your children? How long would you like it to run?

    Can you please give us a little bit more about your aims/goals for your theme?

    Ice in Christ,
    Jamal5000 :love:

    Have guest speakers come & talk about their jobs. These can be parents or community workers. Both the fire department & police department will come talk to the kids or you could go there. We had a football player come in & talk about the importance of following the rules.
