Community helpers are always a popular theme in early education. They have been for years.
I remember learning about mail workers, firefighters, and police officers when I was in nursery school myself.
These neighborhood workers are essential to our daily lives, so it’s only right that we teach kids about them as early as possible.
And, with this community helpers writing activity, you can add in a little ELA too!
This community helpers sentence writing activity is a fun way to use early writing and sentencing building skills to teach students about our local helpers!
You could use this as a one-time writing activity or place it at centers for repeated practice so that kids can work on them over and over.

Helping Hands! Community Helpers Writing Activity
To use this community helpers writing activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer Paper
- Colored pencils
- Laminator (optional)
- Dry erase crayons or dry erase markers (optional)
This writing activity includes seven community helper sentence practice pages, featuring:
- Trash collector
- Mail carrier
- And Police officer
Each page includes a picture of the community helper, along with an example sentence.
Students can practice reading the sentence on each page.
Then they can color the sentence, trace the sentence, and write it for themselves on the lines.
This is an excellent activity for teaching sentence formation, because it gives children an example of what a complete sentence should look like.
Point out that each complete sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a period.
Make sure that students include both of these elements when rewriting the sentences.
If you prefer, you can turn this lesson into a reusable activity by laminating the pages so they can be wiped clean.
Students can use dry erase markers or dry erase crayons to complete them again and again!
