    I do a community helper unit in first grade. We wrote community helper reports in groups of five. Each group first picked a career, and then I gave them sentence strips with the following:
    1. I use ____and _____at my job. (They filled in with tools.)
    2. I work at a ____________. (place)
    3.My job is to ___________________.
    4.I wear a _________and __________.
    5.I am a ____________________.
    To practice the vocabulary of community helpers, I had pre-made cards that fit in the blanks. So sitting with thier groups, I would hold up a card. If it said airport, the the group discussing pilots would get that card and fill it in thier sentence strips. If the card said, "enforce the law" then the police officer group would get that card. Once all the cards have been passed out, they filled in their sentence strips and then rewrite their report into a final draft. We posted these "reports" under pictures they made of their community helper. Hope this makes sense! Have fun!
