Community Helpers Worksheets and More

Let´s introduce Creativity in to our lesson plan. Let your imagination loose! I propose a different view on the classic worksheet. I am sure that you will come up with many interesting ideas for each one, I wish you could post them on my Facebook group: ESL/EFL Preschool Teachers and help the community of teachers.


Ws 1. After the worksheet is done, have the students each community helper.

Prepare 7 small paper plates and some yarn. Glue a community helper on each paper plate. Punch a hole on each paper plate. Attach one another with yarn.

Here´s the link to the resources:

And I put it up in my other store.
and it is here:

Ws 2. Review which items belong to each worker. Then, cut and glue in the corresponding box.

Ws 3. Review the family members that work. Students color all the items. On another piece paper have them place all the items that they have previously cut. Have them stand up at the front and talk about their family members.

Student: Mom is a police officer. Dad is a fire fighter. Grandma is a chef and Grandpa is a pilot.

Ws 4. All the community members have a face and an emotion. Have the students follow your description for each one.

Teacher: The police officer  has blue eyes. He is happy.

Make more combinations for each community member.

I made the hats out of construction paper, but on fun foam they would look better.

 You can also assign a number to each community helper. Make a different hat for each student.

Point to each number.
Teacher: What number is this ?
Students: Three.
Teacher: What is she ?
Students: She´s a police officer.

Call on students and ask questions.
Teacher: Patricia, What number are you ?
Patricia: I am nine.
Teacher: What are you ?
Patricia: I am chef.
Have the students make a line ordering the numbers in their hats.

At your signal, have the students find another student that has the same hat and gather.

Teacher: Where are the fire fighters?
Students: here!!
Teachers: how many firefighters are there ?
Students: (count) One, two, three, four. Four Firefighters!

 And Action!
Teacher: Firefighters, stand up !
               Police officers, run !
                 Chefs, dance!

Flashcards to complete the theme. I am also preparing more than 300 job flashcards, I will be posting them in my other blog:

I will always make the letter arts and crafts that you like so much.


Place the family members cutouts on the board. Add a hat and some items to each one.
Teacher: Who is she ?
Students: She´s Mommy.
Teacher: What does she do ?
Students: She´s a cook(chef).
