How To Use These Community Helpers Preschool Activities:

All of these community helpers preschool printable activities can be printed on white card stock or scrapbook paper and laminated to make them durable and easy for tiny hands to manipulate.

Community Helpers Matching Activity

In the matching game, little learners will match the community helpers to their correct tools.

This game can be used as an independent center, or a concentration game for two children to play together.

Variations of the game include: making pairs (face up to make easier, face down for more difficult) and adding or reducing the amount of pairs in the game to differentiate.

If students are working independently, a community helpers matching worksheet can easily be created!  Paste one pair from each set onto a piece of white computer paper and have your little one paste the match beside of it.

You can also use the card to match up with Community Helper Toys.

Community Helpers Sorting Activity:

The sorting game requires students to match tools and vehicles to the correct community helper.

After we print, cut, and laminate, we use velcro dots to make sure the pictures can stay put on the mats. This is also a fabulous way to throw in some extra fine motor skill practice, but is completely optional! 

There are a few different ways that we have used the snowmen community helper sort activity!

One simple way to use the activity is to provide the community helper mat and a variety of cards to choose from. This way is easily differentiated by altering the number of cards that your little one has to choose from.

The sorting activity is a great way to build and develop vocabulary! By talking about similarities, differences, and categories, learners will have lots of practice with new vocabulary words.

This can also be used as a sensory bin activity. Fill a sensory bin with filler of choice and add the tool and vehicle cards.

Kids can sift and search through the sensory bin to find the cards and match them to the correct sorting mats.

If you love sensory bins as much as we do, you’ll love these ideas!

Community Helpers Word Cards

The options are basically endless for how to use these word cards!

Community Helper Preschool word work activities. Free printable word cards for a community helper theme.
  • Use the cards as a character story starter for your kids.
  • Hang them on a word wall organized by letter.
  • Display them in a pocket chart in your classroom.
  • Provide them as reference words in a writing center.
  • Use them as labels in a dramatic play center.  A post office, doctors office with band aids, or pretend construction site all make great dramatic play areas for a community helper theme in a preschool or kindergarten classroom!
  • Use in journals for practice copying letters and words or drawing illustrations.
