This unit has everything you need for your math and literacy centers to use when teaching Community Helpers. I've included some fun, refreshing ideas to spice up your center time. Your students will be so involved in what they are doing they won't even realize how much they are learning while having so much fun! Here's some of what you'll get:
Cover the Cavities-addition/subtraction
Can I Take Your Order?-class survey
How Many Boo Boo's-ten frames
Tally the Toppings
Workin' 9-5-telling time
Police Car Patterns
Sight Word Find
Spin and Write-handwriting
Mail Truck Middles-middle sounds
Stylin' Sight Words
What's up Doc-letter sort
I've Been Workin' on my Sight Words-sight word scramble
Cookie Sight Words
You've Got Mail
Fireman Firsts-beginning sounds
Teacher Talk-cvc and ccvc words
Pizza Party=ending sounds
Trash or Treasure-real and nonsense words
Visit my blog and look under the Community Helpers label for more photos of these centers!
I won't be able to offer that separately at this time. The magnifying glass template does come with the unit. :)

Love this unit. Is the "How many more" sheet included in this set? I didn't see it listed. If not, how can I find it? Thanks! Susan

I noticed there is a doctor missing on the "How Many Boo-Boo's?" recording sheet. It is the one where the children must count on. I will just have the children to color a dot or something in his place for now. Is this something you can fix? I LOVE all of your units...they are the best! Thanks for all your hard work!

First of all I LOVE this unit and am working on putting it all together right now!!! I did notice a word error though-sorry to point it out :/ It's on page 46-Teacher Talk with the directions. I believe it should be "write it on your paper"?
Thanks again for all your hard work!!!

I was wondering if the Community Helper "people" were included in this unit to use for a fact book? I noticed them on your website but didn't know if they were included in this. Thanks!
No...the helpers "people" are in the Happy Helpers pack in my store. It has the faces for some community helpers. :)

Hi Julie! love the community unit and was just curious if you had a blank/editable copy of the special delivery sight word game? Some of the words on the copy from the unit my students haven't learned just yet. Thanks for any help!
I don't at this time. I'm not sure how to add editable docs. I would suggest whiting out the ones you don't need and writing them in. I'm so sorry. I wish I could help more but am limited on my time these days. :).

Can we edit some of the pages? I teach prek and wanted to change some of the sight word activities and make them using the alphabet. Love the unit ideas, but far too advanced for PreK.
Hello. Thanks for the suggestion. I won't be able to change anything at this time...I'm about to have a baby and will be out of pocket for a little bit. I'll be happy to look at it later and maybe add or edit some of it...but I do have lots of pre-K people that are using it. :) I tried to make most of it to where you could make it however best fits your kids. You might could take the game you want and use the patterns and just print your own letters and such...not sure exactly which games you are wanting changed. :)

I bought the unit because I wanted the teeth picture for the marshmallows. Not very happy it didn't have it in it, since I bought it for that. I need it for today, because I need to do it for a lesson I wanted to do. You do have a lot of great ideas, but a lot are advanced for pre-k. I didn't want to put this in ratings, because I need to look at the unit more to rate it.
I'm sorry you were unhappy with your purchase. I did not create that game myself so I never feel right to recreate and sell something that is not my own creation. I hope you understand my reasoning behind not including this. Sometimes I too like to do games and centers from others so just because I have a picture of it on my blog doesn't mean that it's mine and in my unit. I didn't have that particular game picture in my post from this year, but only from last year. Feel free to always e-mail me or message me on here if you are buying a unit only for one thing. I will always do my best to make things right or to make people happy, but I need to know in advance I guess. Please, before rating, consider the other games and time and effort I put into this unit. I've had nothing but positive feedback and I felt like this was one of my best units so far. I want my customers to be happy and come back and shop so let me know if I can do anything to make you happy. Sorry, again!

Hello, first off I just want to thank you for sharing all of your resources! I love everything I have purchased and I am sure I will do the same in my future purchases. I was hoping to find your insect unit. I noticed you posted about having it on your donor page, but didn't see anything there. Is there someplace to purchase/donate it?
I don't have anything on donorschoose at this time. I will be getting that unit on here at some point. Thanks for checking in! :)

I just purchased your community helper unit. It looks great! There are several pages that are blank that are supposed to have word lists on them and others have fuzzy black lines through them. I have downloaded the latest version of Adobe like the website suggested and it is still the same. Any suggestions? This is not the only unit I intended to buy from you.
I'm not sure...that would be my first suggestion, but I can always e-mail it to you and try it that way. Are you using a mac? I'll help you any way I can to fix it. Let me know or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am always very excited to buy another one of your units. This one looks great!! Quick question, what did you use as band-aids in 'Cover the Boo-Boos'? Thanks for your help. :)
First, I want to say you are a blessing to many of us! I love your ideas and ways that you integrate. I have just discovered TPT a few months ago. My wish list grows every day!
Yesterday I purchased the Commounity Helpers Math & Literacy Centers. I have printed a few of the sheets and noticed some of the margins were cut off. I'm not real computer savy and I wonder if it is something in my printer settings. Do you have any suggestions or can maybe point me in the right direction?
Thanks so much!
Thank you so much! Do you know what pages it was. I can go back and check my document, but I have found that after it saves as pdf format it sometimes does that. I just draw in what it cuts off. Was it a picture that was cut off or words or what? I will def. check on it if you'll let me know. Thanks!
