There are many people in our communities that help us in many different ways. Kids see them all the time and don’t necessarily know what they are called or what they do. This community helpers section will help you solve that problem!
The 24 adorable characters in these pages provide opportunities for kids to think and talk about jobs. Example jobs include teacher, lifeguard, doctor, mechanic, farmer, and vet. Using these resources, your kids will be able to match people to the places where they work and the vehicles they drive, play I Have Who Has, match puzzle pieces, read and recognize vocabulary cards, use flash cards, and much more!
Over 60 pages of resources that are too much fun!
Community Helpers Flash Cards
The adorable characters on these community helpers flash cards will get your kids talking about the workers and their occupations in their neighborhood! Use in a social studies lesson, for kids to review during play time, or post them in a pocket chart. Print them out and cut along the dotted lines. They’ll hold up longer if you print them on card stock and laminate them. Just the right size for little kids hands!
6 pages of 24 flashcards, 4 helpers per page
Community Helpers Vocabulary Cards
These community helpers vocabulary cards are a great choice to fit in a pocket chart. Use one for a lesson about a particular helper or put them all out for kids to familiarize themselves with all the helpers. There are 24 helpers. I’ve included 8 community buildings and 4 vehicles in this set. Kids can read the words on the cards, match the buildings and vehicles to the appropriate helper and match helpers that might work together in the same building or drive in the same vehicle.
36 vocabulary cards on 9 pages, 4 per page
Community Helpers Booklets
I think your kids will really enjoy these community helpers booklets! Each book has two sentences. The first sentence names the job, “I am a ___.”. The second sentence describes what the helper does. For example, for a fireman it says, “I put out fires.”. One booklet is just for reading and coloring, the other includes opportunities to trace the job titles. Use all of the pages or just some. Easy to assemble. Simply print, copy, cut in half, organize the pages, and staple.
Community Helpers I Have Who Has
Community Helpers I Have Who Has is always a fun game that keeps kids on their toes, especially this edition. Besides using listening and reading skills, kids will use visual skills in identifying the helper on their card. Familiarize your kids with these specific helpers by using the coordinating flash cards first. Kindergarteners will most likely need adult help with this game the first few times around. Great fun for the whole class or small groups!

Community Helpers - Matching Game
Matching is great fun for 5 year olds and this set provides several ways to do the matching. To match the images of the community helpers matching game, print two sets of the images. You can use the whole set of 24, or just some of them. The same for the word cards, print two sets and match. Or you can match the image cards to the word cards. The pictures will be easier for younger kids.
4 pages, 2 of images and 2 of job titles.
Community Helpers Job Descriptions
Kids see many community helpers every day, but we rarely stop to talk about what they do. These bubble maps will give you that opportunity! Choose a community helper (or a few) and brainstorm with your kids what they think the helper does. Fill in the six bubbles on the community helpers job descriptions worksheet using one word or a short phrase of what they actually do. For example, a chef chops, cooks, bakes, stirs, measures, and pours. Have fun!
Community Helpers Count How Many
Go ahead! Add some community helpers to your math lessons! These community helpers count how many pages have up to 10 objects neatly arranged in each set. Most have four sets per page, but some have six. Kids count the objects that correspond to the community helper on that page and write the numbers in the boxes. Objects include items like a policeman’s badge, a batch of vegetables for a chef, a hospital or school house, a cat, a dog and a bus. Coloring is extra! Answer sheets included.
Community Helpers Matching Puzzles
These 24 adorable community helpers matching puzzles pieces have been cut in two! Help match the bottom half to the top half to make each one whole again. Two reference sheets with 12 helpers each have been included in this set to help kids out in the matching process. Print the reference sheets, enlarge, and post so kids can clearly see them. Print on cardstock, cut along the dashed lines, and laminate for longer lasting cards.
8 pages: 6 puzzle pages and 2 reference sheets
