Lincoln 2nd Graders to ‘Report’ Live From Career Day
Students participating in Lincoln Elementary School Career Day today will “report” on the event while it is happening by updating this article throughout the program.
In addition to being the Emmaus Patch editor, I am the mother of a second grade boy who attends Lincoln Elementary School.
The second grade teachers at Lincoln have organized a Career Day program in which parents will come in to talk to the second graders about their jobs.
I am one of those parents.
From what I understand, the parents will be set up in “stations” and will speak to small groups of students in 15-minute rotations. I intend to make the second graders who come to see me honorary Patch editors and ask them to help me to update this article with their perspectives on Career Day and some pictures of what’s going on.
The program will run from noon to 2 p.m. If all goes as planned, additions to this article should start appearing while you’re eating lunch.
Wish me luck!
I am at Lincoln Elementary Career Day with second graders Logan Roth and Brandon Miner. We are in sesson two right now and I am going to interview them about their day so far.
Logan says his favorite part of Career Day is that they can take pictures and that he is being interviewed by Emmaus Patch.
Brandon says his first Career Day sesson was with a second grade dad who helps people with their water if something happens to it. While he was in session one, he got to work with bolts and nuts.
Group three is here now. It includes:
- Connor Flok
- Taleigha Galvao
- Daniel Vazquez
- Ben Urffer
Daniel says he is having fun at Career Day. He liked making something with Mr. Tigar.
Connor says the Emmaus Patch station is his favorite. Taleigha also likes Emmaus Patch the best.
Ben says he liked getting ear plugs on a blue cord to take home with him. He got them from Mr. Tigar.
Group four is here now. I am talking Zoe Elston and Christopher MacDonald. Here's what they have to say about career day:
Zoe says here favorite part of Career Day has been making candy butterflies.
Christopher says his favorite part of Career Day was visiting with Mr. Tigar.
Group Five, my last group of the day is here. Jessenya Davis is interviewing Marec Pun using a reporter's notebook and a Patch pen.
Marec is disappointed that he did not get to visit his parents' station at Career Day.
The teachers decided to let the students learn about other careers. They can talk to their parents at home.
Jesseyna liked career day. She especially liked making a candy butterfly.
