TCS first grade students have been learning about community helpers by exploring different occupations. The students were especially excited when TCS parents visited to share information on their jobs. To enhance the study, each student chose a community helper and researched the person’s occupation and how they help our community. The students then created buildings reflecting each professional’s workplace along with an informational poster to be used in an oral presentation. They also worked together to build a community in their classroom. TCS Art teacher, Mrs. DeLuca, assisted students in the creation of their buildings and STEAM teacher, Ms. Wilkins, guided students in the construction of their city. On Friday, parents were invited to see their communities and hear their research presentations.
