These pages will provide your students with easy and quick writing practice!
This packet contains 38 pages of community helpers writing pages!
Have students color each picture (quickly!) and then write a sentence to go with each picture. Young students can write simple sentences while older students can include more details. If students struggle to think of something to write, encourage them to look at the details in the pictures (colors used, body parts, tools, etc.). You may even have them add details to the pictures (add a ground, sky, flowers, other small details, etc.). Words relating to community helpers have been added so students don't get "stuck" on spelling the word.
