We had so much fun celebrating our wonderful community helpers!
We started by reading this Community Helper book. You can get it in our Community Helper Bundle
, which is ON SALE NOW for the giveaway!
My students took turns reading the pages. One of my students read “He builds our houses”
The rest of the class tried to guess which community helper he was reading about.
They were so excited to yell out, “builder!”
Then we sang and acted out our Community Helpers song which is also in our bundle. These kiddos are singing “Community Helpers are always standing by.”
This little guy was having fun doing the last part of the song with his air guitar.
Next, my kiddos dressed up like community helpers. I gave them the wrong tools on purpose so that the other students would come up and give the helpers the correct tools. They thought it was pretty funny. I got my props off of Amazon.
This is one of the students giving our fireman the correct tool.
My class loved dressing up and they had no trouble doing our sheets after singing the song and seeing our helpers in front like this.
This is just one of the sheets in our bundle that has the students match the correct tool to the correct helper.
My kiddos loved making the 9 community helper finger puppets that we sang about in the song.
This creative gal decided to create her own puppet theater! I just love to see children come up with their own ideas like this!
I also had more students use these setting sheets as a background for their finger puppets. They acted out the community helper song while they danced their puppets around.
We made a class book about what community helper we want to be when we grow up.
