  • When not being used on a wall display,  place them in labelled boxes, or hanging pockets for continued use and reference.
  • Make an Our Community Alphabet Book using the template from Printable Alphabet Book – children place a Community Helper word on each alphabet page.  (Don’t forget to do a large A3 size whole class one and pop it in the class library also)
  • Make a jigsaw puzzle.  Make up a second set of cards, cut the picture section off using a zigzag or curve cut like a jigsaw (you can even cut through the word to make it more of a challenge)  Children then match the 2 pieces.
  • Ask parents to come in and talk about their occupation.
