“Community is much more than belonging to something: it is about doing something together that makes belonging matter.” Knowing about our community helpers is a matter of pride, concern and a sense of responsibility to give our bit. This activity is to know who are our helpers and their duties in a fun, competitive and interesting way.
Helpfulness is an important part of good social development, and there are many excellent ways for children to practice being helpful. It is easy to make them understand and teach about our helpers since we see Community Helpers in so many places throughout our daily routine. By getting to know our Community Helpers, children get inspired by those who work to make our world a better place to live.
