What do you want to be when you grow up?

We're looking at community and the people that help us. We've looked at people in our school, and now are talking about what we'd like to do with our lives, or what we want to do when we grow up. They were excited to hear I wanted to be a teacher when I was little and now I really am "So you really can become what you always wanted to?!!" one exclaimed. Yep.

The vocab is as follows:

doctor 医生 yi sheng
teacher 老师 lao shi
actress/actor 演员 yan yuan
police 警察 jing cha
chef 厨师 chu shi
architect 工程师 gong cheng shi

We are working with counting money, story problems, and subtraction from up to 12 this week in math.


School Chinese New Year Celebration this Thursday, February 10th, 6 p.m. Please have your child there on time so they will be able to sing with us.

Class Chinese New year celebration this Friday. Email me if you would like to come in and help. I will be emailing those interested on Wednesday with party details.


  1. can you provide your email for those of us who do not have it?

  2. Yes of course.

  3. The New Years party was wonderful last night. I think it's great to hear how excited the kids are about growing up and being whoever they want to be. What a gift it is to have a teacher, Lao shi, who encourages their enthusiasm.
