Mom, Who Are Community Helpers?
Yesterday I was watching the news of the Framer protest, and suddenly my 4-year boy asked me “Mom who are Farmers?”
Then I realized that I need to teach him all our Helpers, to the context of any emergency situations, it’s very important to introduce the Community Helpers to our kids, so that they can recognize people and trust them who is in charge to serve & protect us, like Police Officer, Doctors, Firefighters, teachers and etc.
We always teach our kids to avoid talking to strangers, but in any emergency situation like a fire at home, children need to recognize the particular community helper by their dress and to call out for help for our safety.
We need to teach our kids that community helper are the people who work together to make a better community for everyone.
In some schools, they even teach kids to interact with community helpers in every situation.
Doctor & Dentist-Those who help us to stay healthy.
Veterinarian-Those who help our pets to stay healthy.
Teacher & Librarian– who help us to learn new & exciting things.
Police officers & Fire Fighter-Those who keep us safe.
Mail Carrier/Post Man– Those who bring us mail and packages
Farmer, Chefs, Fishermen & Cooks-Those who provide food to us.
Sanitation workers (Garbage Collectors)-Those who keep our community clean.
Construction worker & Plumber– Those who help us in repairing our home & to build new home.
Bus Drivers & Road construction workers, Crossing guards-Those who help us to travel Safe.
You can make your children learn about these community helpers (Community helpers worksheets) by drawing the pictures of them with their important tools.
We can ask them multiple questions such as “who does what job?” or “where does he work?”
Also, we can put on a play with community helpers cutouts or puppets.
