Community Helpers

One of my favorite themes this year was community helpers.  We got to go on field trips to fun places like the the post office, the fire station, and the dentist office.

Here are some follow-up sheets the students completed after the trip:

 We used the costumes and props in the drama center:

My students especially loved using this cute pet intake form while playing vet.  I found it here at Kindergarten Night Owls.

We made class books like this:

We learned a song the follows the tune of the wheels on the bus.  Here is a powerpoint I made to help the students learn the words:

Towards the end of the unit, we talked about what students want to be when they grow up and then we created this poster that says: When I grow up I will be someone who helps my community!  I used clip art pictures of community helpers and put my students faces in place of the clip art faces.

Here is a link to the clip art that I used and the labels for the bottom of the graph.

We then hung this poster in the center of the bulletin board and surrounded it with these community helpers that my students cut out of construction paper.  It was amazing to see how much their scissor skills have improved from the beginning of the year!

If you want to download the templates I made, go here for a free download.  I just cut down construction paper so that it would fit into the printer.
