people in your neighborhood

sesame street said it best when they taught us this song....
oh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
in your neighborhood?
in your neighborhood?
say, who are the people in your neighborhood?
the people that you meet each day!

this past friday, my little friends at school got the joy of learning all about community helpers.
and i got the fun job (along with my grade level) of helping them learn! :0)
each one of us kindergarten teacher picked a "job" that we wanted to teach all the kids about.
i was totally excited to give my friends, and all the kindergarten kiddos, a personal experience and let them know that they could one day grow up to be something special to their own community!

oh, the postman always brings the mail
through rain or snow or sleet or hail
i'll work and work the whole day through
to get your letters safe to you

cause a postman is a person in your neighborhood

in your neighborhood
he's in your neighborhood
a postman is a person in your neighborhood
a person that you meet each day

dr. gabs and i
had a lot of fun
dressing up to help
our little friends learn!
and needless to say,
i don't think our little friends
will ever forget the day
their silly teachers
came to school dressed up like
people in their neighborhood.

I love that song! I used to sing it to the twins when they were babies all the time!

Remember the "Speedy Delivery" guy? Was he different from the mail carrier?
