Learning about community helpers is one of our favorite units that we cover in our homeschool preschool. There are so many different community helpers to study and learn about. You can cover a new one each week and have months of fun learning opportunities.
I found the cutest printable hats from Tot Schooling that is perfect for studying community helpers. These printable paper hats cover 10 different occupations. Each one has the image of that hat that is normally worn for each job and 3 images on the back that relate to that job. Your kids will have so much fun coloring, cutting and creating these hats. The community helpers that they cover are:
- Police Officer
- Mail Carrier
- Construction Worker
You can grab these free printables with detailed instructions HERE.
