This past week we had 11 parents come in to speak out their careers to our 3rd graders. I believe they really liked it ! Thy asked some awesome questions and it really has given them something to look forward to and believe in.
I know some think 3rd grade is too young, but when it being too young an answer for not having dreams and goals?
There are so many things out there nowadays, why shouldn’t kids st age 8 have a goal, a hope, a wish, a dream, a desire, something to look forward to ? Something that isn’t a video game or made up.
Therefore, career day with young kids is a great idea. It’s really a good idea for all grades, and it’s real life information that gets the kids and parents involved in heir education.
