Right now in our world, the heroes have changed. We are so proud of our community helpers and the work they do for us in this challenging time of life. Teach your kids about community helpers and how they help us! We value these people and the hard work they continuously do.
I was talking to my husband about this last nigh as we drove around town. We passed a hospital and the sign outside said “Heroes Work Here”. We passed a school and there were signs of love and support.
I realized something. The heroes have changed.
Right now with no professional sports or concerts, and less focus on popular culture, we are recognizing the true heroes- the community helpers, the people who live and work in our community to keep it safe and keep it running.
These are the ones still working through this hard time to make sure we have all that we need and that we survive!
So today I have a fun community helper printable you can use in your teaching. There are many more community helpers that are just as awesome and I wish I could have included each and every one. But know this is for all of you and your hard work.
We want to make sure our kids know who the real heroes are!
Community Helpers Printable
This set is for those in the early stages of reading. That could be kindergarten or first grade, but a preschooler would still enjoy the book! All of it is included in both color and black and white for kids to color in.
In this printable set, there are a few different fun things. There is a little book talking about the different community helpers and what they do to help us. The name of the helper on each page is made to be traced so kids can learn the words.
There is also a Read – Build – Write page and a set of cards for each of the community helpers as well as several other words for each helper for kids to read, build and write.
What is Read-Build-Write?
If you are not familiar with this activity, it is a great one! I have seen it in many different forms, but wanted to focus on the community helpers today! The blank mat had a space for each word to be read, built with letter tiles or whatever letter set you may have, and then written out, too. We used a dry erase sleeve for this, or you can laminate it.
The Community Helper cards are made to be cut apart and picked at random for the kids to learn to read and spell.

- Doctor & Nurse
