Community helpers include police officers, mail carriers, teachers, doctors, firefighters, and many others who help make the community a better place to live.
Who are the community helpers in your neighborhood? Today we will learn about some of these important people.
Police officers go to work at a police station. Some police officers stay at the station while others patrol our neighborhoods in their cars. Police officers carry flashlights to help them see in dark places and whistles to help them direct traffic. They also have a radio so they can stay in touch with the police officers at the station. Their job is to protect us by enforcing the laws.
Doctors work in hospitals or doctor’s offices. Their job is to help you stay healthy. When you visit the doctor he might use his stethoscope to listen to your heart and a tongue depressor to look down your throat. If you are sick he will examine you to see what is wrong and will give you medicine that will help you feel better.
A chef works in a restaurant. Chefs use many things to prepare the food we eat including knives to cut and chop, spoons to stir, and pots and pans for cooking. They also work hard to keep their kitchen clean and tidy!
Firefighters go to work at the fire station. Whey they get an emergency call they put on their gear and leave in the fire truck to go help. Their job is to put out the fires and rescue people in danger. They also teach us about fire safety. Firefighters wear a special suit that protects them from the fire. They spray water on the fire from fire hoses hooked up to their water trucks or nearby fire hydrants.
A mail carrier goes to work at the Post Office, where he picks up the mail he is to deliver that day. He loads the mail into his mail truck and leaves the post office to start his deliveries. He drives along his route, delivering the mail to the addresses on the envelopes.
Painters work in our homes and businesses. They help us to choose paint colors and they use paint brushes and rollers to put the paint on our walls and ceilings. Sometimes they have to use ladders to reach way up high.
A teacher works in a school. She teaches children about the alphabet and numbers. Teachers also help children learn about lots of other things like math, science, and social studies. Teachers always have plenty of paper and pencils for writing and they love to read books to their students!
A veterinarian works at a veterinarian’s office. She helps to keep our pets healthy and takes care of them when they are sick. She uses a stethoscope to listen to their hearts and tummies and gives them shots to keep them well.
