Learning About Community Helpers
I can quite surely say that learning about community helpers was definitely one of Trucker’s favorite topics by far. He simply never got bored, and we kept going back to our vocabulary cards and books. I created a mega bundle of community helpers vocabulary which can be incorporated into a community helpers unit. This can be used for a writing activity or a vocabulary building activity. Click on the image below to find out more. The mega bundle contains the Who am I? Community Helpers Riddles printable as well.
Community Helpers Figurines
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but I LOVE figurines. The idea of having a physical object in teaching just excites me; I can’t really explain why LOL. We have plenty of figurines for our community helpers and I have listed some of the ones we LOVE the most below. We used them for pretend play, in sensory bins and simply as a discussion activity. We loved talking about what they do, the tools they use (the figurines normally have a tool related to their profession) and how they work, etc. Make sure to check them out, they definitely don’t disappoint!
Community Helper Books
We definitely did a lot of reading on this topic, and the number of books available are literally endless. We read tons of books, and each new book was able to provide with some information that was new. I have not made a book list yet, if you would be interested do let
Who am I? Community Helper Riddle Questions
This printable doesn’t just feature vocabulary cards unlike the other community helper printables. It instead focuses on building reading and comprehension skills using question riddles. The text describes the work that the community helper does in a simple manner and students will have to read, understand and figure out who the helper is.

Preparing the Printable
Print out the file onto cardstock, and laminate for durability.
Cut along the lines to separate the text cards from the picture cards.
Distribute some of the pictures among a small group of children.
Name each picture and talk about it together. Draw a text card and let the children read the text (or read it to them) and use the clues to identify the correct picture.
Avoid introducing all the 40 helpers at one time, to prevent overwhelming the learner. Use to 2 or 3 cards for younger learners and for kindergarteners or first graders more cards can be introduced (I would recommend to stick to a maximum of 10 cards at one time)
The activity can also be used as a ‘write the room’ activity, where the text cards are given to the students and they have to write down the name of the community helper after reading the clues on the cards.
The picture cards can be used as a vocabulary enriching activity.
I’ve tried to include in the common community helpers that children are familiar with, as well as those that are not discussed about as frequently, to provide diversity and enrich vocabulary.
