Learning about community helpers is always a fun theme in the classroom and can spark so many fun conversations with children. In addition to talking and reading about community helpers, playing bingo is a fun way to introduce and build vocabulary around this concept and a game that almost everyone enjoys. This free Community Helpers Bingo Game is a great activity to add to your unit, or to use any time of the year!
Community Helpers Bingo Game
These bingo cards are perfect to use in a small group in the classroom or at home with your own children.
There are 6 different boards containing 9 different community helpers; police officer, firefighter, veterinarian, detective, mail carrier, doctor, dentist, teacher, and librarian.
How to Prep and Play
In the classroom, I print off and laminate the bingo cards to keep them sturdy. I do the same with the calling cards.
Sometimes I play whole class bingo, even with just 6 different cards. This allows more kids to win and shout “Bingo!” which makes it that much more fun!
I pull a card and show it underneath my document camera (for whole class) or hold it up to the group so that they can see the card clearly to find the match.
I am sure to say the name to build the vocabulary, and I might even ask questions such as, “What does a dentist do?” to help build understanding before moving on.
We play until someone has 3 in a row and calls “Bingo!” – then we clear our boards and play again.
With younger children, you can play until blackout (everyone will win at the same time). The kids still find it really fun, especially with a sticker or fun prize at the end!
