Are You Studying Community Helpers?

Talk about something HIGH INTEREST that the students love to learn about! Social Studies, Reading and Community Awareness all rolled into one! If you are teaching community helpers during the first few weeks of school, to introduce this lesson, use an anchor chart to list as many community helpers as the students know. Ask them, "Do you think a teacher is a community helper?" 
Community Helpers are a HIGH INTEREST subject that students love to learn about! Social Studies, Reading and Community Awareness all rolled into one which many students already have previous knowledge of, and therefore are very successful!

Next, explain to them that a community helper is anyone who provides a service. Get as many community helpers listed as they know, police, dentist, mail carrier, etc.  Then as the lesson continues or as the week rolls by, you can have them add the new ones they learn about to the chart. One of the very best things about studying community helpers is that the students are so excited, their large word, extended vocabulary expands by leaps and bounds.

Next in the lesson, read one of these terrific books to expand their knowledge of community helpers.
