When I Grow Up

We have spent a lot of time this year talking about being a life long learner.
We talk about learning in school, learning in the world around us, and learning through experiences.
We talk about how learning is fun, exciting and meaningful.
We talk about how important it is to go to school every day, do your best, and make achieving choices, while you're in Pre-K and even when you get older.
Each day, we talk about how we're in Pre-K now, but one day, we're going to grow up and go to college and be something great!

Over the past two weeks, we have really focused on learning about different jobs and careers that we can do when we grow up.
We read books about different jobs and careers.
We pretended in Dramatic Play that we had different jobs and careers.
We made a list of the things that we would like to be when we grow up.
It was hard to decide exactly what we want to be when we grow up, but we decided that it is ok if we change our minds.

Alex wants to be a teacher.
Barbara wants to be a teacher.
Christian wanted to be a train conductor, now he wants to be a police officer.
Eduardo wants to be a train conductor.
Erik wants to be a doctor.
Ganea wants to be a Nana and an artist.
Jarod wants to be a dress maker.
Jayden wants to be a teacher.
Jazmin wants to be a doctor.
Josiah wants to be a computer lab man.
Laisha wants to be a teacher.
Leah wants to be an actor.

We are in Pre-K, but one day, we're going to go to college to be something great!!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for planting these seeds early! Not long ago I asked an 8th grader what she was going to do when she grew up. She had no idea! I asked her if she planned on going to college. She said she had never thought about it! I really felt bad for her.

  2. This is wonderful to read! Obviously, they are learning all the time and are so impressionable---why not with the good things and dreams of life!? "Whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are..., think on these things." (Apostle Paul)
    Thank you for cultivating young minds and lives with good things! You are in the right place, Mrs. V!
