To save time, you can precut the community helpers name cards. However, with some children and grades having them cut out the names is a great chance for them to practice their fine motor skills while cutting.

Once they have the name cut outs, children work to match it to the community helpers on their pages. There are twelve helper totaled. The helpers featured on the page are:

Extension Ideas

Once you have completed the pages and ensured that children matched the community helpers name to the correct picture, the worksheets provide a great opportunity for further learning.

Encourage children to look at the pictures of each community helper and discuss what else they notice in each photo. What tools or supplies do they notice each helper has?

You can also talk about where children have seen these community helpers before. For example, ask who has been to the dentist? What happened when you met the dentist?

You can also discuss what each community helper does to help people in the community. Whether it is to keep people healthy (doctors, dentists etc.) or keep the community safe (crossing guards, police etc.)
