A Community Helpers Unit UPDATE!

Hi all!

I have been busy updating a few of my original teaching resources because I’m always coming up with more ideas! One being one of the first few I added to my Teachers Pay Teachers store back in 2013! It seems like just yesterday I began my TPT and blogging journey but in actual fact it’s been over two years!

A lot has changed in that time! The availability of more fabulous clip art and the introduction of many graphic designers with much clearer (and cuter!) graphics to suit our needs has been amazing!

So…. I thought I would give one of my best selling resources (My Community Helpers Unit) and bit of a spruce up! The pack is now 68 pages and I have used some newer graphics and borders. I have also added more activities into the pack and have included more community helper occupations. However, the price is still the same!

What’s included :

  • 10 page Mini Book – My Community Helpers. (Children colour in and read – Can be used as an Emergent Reader for their book boxes or for guided reading sessions)
