Are You Studying Community Helpers?

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/I-Have-Who-Has-Community-Helpers-Cards-Bundle-2963937
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, 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?" 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.
Busy, Busy Town by Richard Scarry {My favorite!}
What Do People Do All Day? By Richard Scarry
Whose Hat is This? By Sharon Katz Cooper
Career Day by Anne Rockwell
Helpers in My Community by Bobbie Kalman
Delivering Your Mail: A Book About Mail Carriers by Ann Owen

Depending on the grade level you teach, the students can complete one of the following activities, alone, with partners or in a group.
1. Draw a picture of their favorite community helper.
2. Cut out magazine pictures of their favorite community helpers and create a collage.
3. Write a letter thanking one of their favorite community helpers.
4. Create a news interview with a community helper.
5. Role Play their favorite community helper and have other students guess who they are.



I hope you enjoy teaching this fun unit, I have many other Community Helper resources in my TpT store for you.

My friend, Tabitha at Flapjack featured it in her March video, TpT St. Patrick's Day Classroom Freebies K-5.

Are You Reviewing Long Vowels This Week?


Are you reviewing Long Vowels this week? Maybe introducing them? One of my very favorite ways to start long vowels is with good ole' Silent E.

Another wonderful way to transition from short vowels to long vowels is with a two-fold page activity. Let each child pick a short vowel CVC word and then add silent e to the word on the other side of the page. {See picture.}
Reviewing Long Vowels with Videos, Activities and Resources at Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas. 
Two-Fold Silent E Activity
If you are pushed for time, give your students the CVC word on an index card, otherwise, plan a little time for a discussion of real words vs. made up words, if you get gup and gupe, etc. Enjoy!
I have created some really cute long vowel I Have, Who Has cards lately, with the word only version being Dollar Deals.

Another popular post of mine shows a lot more short vowel and long vowel ideas, click here to read more.
