  • 1. Community Helpers Writing ProjectUse the tree map and the sentence endings to create an informational map about communityhelpers with the kids.Then create stories using the tree map and sentences from the tree map.Illustrate the story with community helpers they kids draw on their own.Resources from the internethttp://bensguide.gpo.gov/k-2/neighborhood/ Use this to discuss all the different jobs.http://www.mrsnelsonsclass.com/teacherresources/thematicunits/communityhelpers.aspx ppt for community helpercareersCompiled by: maggie from Pro Teacher Community Chat Board….I do a community helper unit in first grade. We wrote community helper reports in groups of five. Each group first picked a career, andthen 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 withtheir groups, I would hold up a card. If it said airport, the the group discussing pilots would get that card and fill it in their 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 intheir sentence strips and then rewrite their report into a final draft. We posted these "reports" under pictures they made of theircommunity helper. Hope this makes sense! Have fun!

  • 4. With my Grade Ones I do a special writing project on Community helpers later in the year.We take a piece of paper and divide it into quarters. In the centre of the paper is an oval forthe community helpers label. Then in each quarter we put a heading- where they work, whatthey do, special tools they use and why are they important to us in the community. Then Ishare lots of read alouds about the community helpers and the children then pick one helperand fill in their pre-writing frames using words and/or pictures. After their plan is made, thechildren begin their true writing using complete sentences and pictures. (A new page for eachheading) Then for those who are ready, we also make a table of contents and learn how tonumber pages. What works out well for me is that some children do 2 topics ... some 3 some4 ... differentiation is built right in. The final task is to do a title page ... once again we havelooked at the covers of the books from read aloud time and then created our criteria for whatwe noticed as key features of a title page. Hope this helps! Jo-Ann Van Staalduinen throughfirstgradeteachersintn yahoo group
