My kiddos have been learning about community helpers for the past week and a half. We have been using Julie Lee's awesome community helpers unit in small group and during literacy and math stations to add some excitement to our day. I love Julie's units because the directions for the activities are very similar between activities and units, with the only huge change being the skills we are working on. Once I spend the time teaching my kiddos how to complete the activities, I don't have to go back and reteach directions and expectations when we start a new unit.
Here are a few community helpers things I've made for my class. I hope you will find them useful with your kiddos as well. Enjoy!!
