Explore community helpers in your classroom with these inspiring ideas!

Last week was all about community helpers.  We invited our fellow bloggers to share some of their ideas on how to introduce the concept of community helpers to preschool age children.  What we got was a lot of really great posts that were both fun and informative!  Here are a few of my favorites:

Thanks so much to all of our blogger friends for sharing their wonderful community helper resources!
