Here in Missouri, we (sadly) aren't even remotely close to a beach. Most of my preschoolers have never even seen a beach! So, creating a pretend play beach and ice cream shop was super fun for my midwest kiddos!

Tell me something... do you happen to struggle with making meaningful home and school connections?
A positive connection between school and families is an integral part of the success of students in the classroom. It is important for us to try and educate parents on the needs of their preschool aged children. When parents and educators are on the same page, a child's success can soar.
You can give every student in your classroom a job easily and fit them into your preschool classroom!
Kids love feeling special and I love helping them feel special! That is why in our preschool classroom each and every child has a special job every day. For us, having preschool classroom jobs is not just about children helping out in class. Jobs help cultivate a feeling of community. Plus, when each student gets a job everyday he or she fills a special spot within that community. For preschoolers, jobs are super fun!
I like to create jobs that fit easily into our day. Some of the jobs I assign are carried out through the day. Some examples of these jobs include:
I also like to incorporate some jobs that promote learning and community that we carry out during our circle time. Some examples of these jobs include:
-The Greeter (see picture below)
Some of these circle time jobs I like to bring in and out throughout the year to give a little variety to the jobs and to our circle time.
Are you thinking...a job for everyone- that sounds like a lot of work?! Trust me when I tell you, once students learn the jobs, it flows so nicely. Give it a try!
Do you already incorporate a job for each student everyday? Tell me about it in the comments below!
