Ideas For Using These Community Helpers Flash Cards
You can use these flash cards in the traditional sense where you show the picture to your child and have them recite what the ‘job’ is called and what they do.
You can also use these flash cards to create a matching game. Mix up all of the flash cards, turn them face down and lay them on the table.
The players can take turns pulling up two cards. If they match, the player pulls them and puts them in a pile. If they don’t match, turn them back upside down and remember what was there.
Then it is the next person’s turn. This continues until all matches are made. The person with the most matches win.
Another use for these cards is to use them as inspiration for a writing or drawing prompt. Mix up the cards and ask the child to pick one. Depending on interest and skill, children can either write about or draw about the helper on that card.
Use the flash cards as inspiration for pretend play. Children LOVE pretending to be certain types of people with a variety of jobs.
