Community Helpers

Have you ever met a community helper who wasn’t needed to help your neighborhood, school, or city run smoothly? We all have a job to do and every job serves a purpose. Community helpers come in all shapes and sizes and they’re all around us.

Why not invite a local fireman, librarian, or doctor to come to your classroom and share with your kids what their job is like, who they help, and how they serve their community? You will find that some of your student’s parents would love to come and share about their jobs, if you just asked! Have them bring their gear, too. Maybe a doctor could listen to a heartbeat, a fireman put his helmet on a student’s head, or a mechanic show the kids how to use some tools. The kids love seeing (though maybe not handling) all the cool stuff grown ups work with every day.

Community Helpers Matching - Match the Helpers to the Buildings

Community Helpers

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!
