Here's what other teachers have to say about the Community Helpers Unit

"There are so many great visuals and activities in this product! I really loved how they introduce the idea of "community" before diving into each group of community helpers. It was perfect for my preschool speech and language students who need more structure and support during large group and circle time."

"One of my best purchases for our Pre-K class! So many colorful ideas and the best resource for teaching about community helpers."
