Community Helpers Kindergarten includes writing printables for twelve different community helpers: chef, crossing guard, doctor, farmer, firefighter, mail carrier, mechanic, nurse, police officer, sanitation worker, teacher, and veterinarian. I also include one printable for students to write about a community helper that is not included in the packet.
Have your students read and listen to books about community helpers.
Students complete “is, has, can” frame sentences about each community helper. Each printable has a place for students to illustrate their writing. Students can write about every community helper, or they can choose which ones they want to write about.
You can place the printables at a thematic writing/social studies or literacy center, or use them during your writing block for guided or independent writing.
I also include half-page size posters of each of the community helpers. Both colored and black and white versions are included. These can be laminated and placed on a pocket chart or word wall or placed at a writing center for reference.
“Is, has, can” word cards are included for whole or small group brainstorming and discussions. The students can share their ideas for completing the frame sentences.
Another idea is to have students write about their favorite community helper. The writings can be compiled into a class book and placed in your reading center for the students to read. A class book cover in both color and black and white is included in the packet.
