Community Helper Bags

I am SO excited to share these Community Helper Bags with you!! I’ve wanted to create them for awhile, but was just waiting for the ideas to come together in my mind so I could make them happen! I created 6 different bags and inside each one of them, I added items that would help my students experience a small part of that community helpers job.  Easy to Make Community Helper Bags

My students have had so much fun using these each day!  They ask for a different bag each time and I love that they are interacting with each other as they explore.

 

A few days ago, some of my students found out how the Chef depends on the Grocer to get the food they need to prepare it!  What a great connection.  Its fun to watch the student who chooses the Mail Carrier bag go on their delivery rounds each day around the classroom! Photo Apr 04, 9 24 19 AM2

In this photo, you can see one of my students borrowed the fish from the Grocer bag so he could feed it to the kitten! 🙂Photo Apr 09, 3 08 10 PM6Photo Apr 04, 2 52 02 PMPhoto Apr 04, 2 51 42 PM

My students are THRILLED to be able to use these easy to make Community Helper Bags!  You can read more about how I made them here! What other Community Helpers would you include?
