Story Time Starter: Awesome Jobs!

September 07, 2020

Today is Labor Day so let's celebrate with some great stories, rhymes, songs, and crafts that celebrate the jobs people do!

There are many awesome books about specific jobs such as construction workers, nurses, mechanics, teachers, and so much more! Here are a few of our favorite titles that explore and celebrate a wide range of jobs!

You can add a rhyme and song or two that celebrate different jobs!

Job Song (Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)
This is the way the bus driver drives
The bus driver drives
The bus driver drives
This is the way the bus driver drives
When she does her work.
(Continue with other jobs…This is the way the chef cooks, teacher reads, barber cuts, musician plays, etc.)

“Hurry Hurry”
Hurry, hurry, drive the fire truck
Hurry, hurry, drive the fire truck
Hurry, hurry, drive the fire truck
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep!
(Turn the corner, spray the water, climb the ladder, save the people)

What Is My Job? (Sung to: "Are you sleeping?")
What is my job? What is my job?
Can you guess? Can you guess?
I help people get well.
I help people get well.
Who am I? Who am I?
Other verses: I can fix the water pipes.I deliver letters. I make tasty meals for you. I keep your pets healthy. I can teach you new things. I can help if you get lost.

Johnny works with one hammer, (one hand)
One hammer, one hammer,
Johnny works with one hammer,
All day long.
Two...Three...Four...Five hammers
(other hand, one foot, other foot, head)
Johnny is getting tired now.... (slow down and fall asleep)
Johnny is waking up again....

Finish up your story time with one of the career-oriented paper crafts! Make sure you let your child's imagination soar-you never know what they may come up with!

 Enjoy!
