Picture This! Community Helpers – Language Worksheets Using Real Pictures


187 pages later… my latest product is finally finished! And I’m pretty excited about it. It uses 5 real-life pictures of different community helpers (farmer, mail carrier, police officer, doctor, & teacher) and TONS of worksheets that go along with each. If you want to see a video of the assembled product, click here!


I assembled the entire packet in this binder! It’s a super easy grab and go resource for practically my entire caseload.

Every Picture This! product includes a file you can upload to your iPad containing pictures, as well as corresponding worksheets. Worksheets with and without pictures on the top are included for ease of use.

One of the best things about “Picture This!” is the variety of skills that can be targeted with a single picture. Use it all day for your caseload! Below are the topics covered in this packet:

WH Questions (levels 1-4)
Factual Questions About Community Helpers
Word Meanings
Sentence Formulation
Noticing Details
Inferring From Details
Identifying Emotions
Expected/Unexpected Behaviors
Think It vs. Say It
Identifying Nonverbal Body Language
Appropriate Conversations

You can use this packet in a variety of ways depending on your preferences. Included is:


–1 PDF file containing the pictures – can be printed or uploaded to your iPad to save on ink! (I print them and keep them in the front of my binder)


Worksheets WITH the pictures on the top! Great for sending home for homework! No need for other materials!


Worksheets WITHOUT pictures on the top! Great way to save on ink!

How do you use it?? First, find a picture you’d like to target. There are FIVE different pictures included: mail carrier, doctor, teacher, farmer, and police officer. Note the number in the circle in the upper right hand corner. That number corresponds with the worksheets. For example, the farmer picture and worksheets all have the number 4 in the upper right corner (see below).


This packet is super versatile! I like to laminate many of the pages and reuse them with dry erase markers. You might prefer to pull up the pictures on an iPad and print everything in black and white (it definitely prints great in black and white).


Check out more pictures below.

I like to put pages like the one below is dry erase sleeves!


Below are two worksheets, 1 targeting body language and the other targeting identifying emotions.

    This looks like a great product – I appreciate your pointing out its versatility in being printed/staying online/printed in color/printed in b and w, etc. I also love the real photographs – I know there’s research both ways, but I myself prefer the real pictures.

    What a wonderful product! I work at an elementary school with students Prek through 5th and this would work for all ages! The pictures make it adaptable for the young pre/early readers. And it targets so many language and pragmatic areas. Great work!!!

    Looks like a fabulous product. I am always on the hunt for realistic photos. I think that students respond so much better to them than the cartoon drawings (especially middle schoolers). I especially like how you made them a PDF so I can pull them up on my iPad, makes the kids think they are looking at some pics I took! 🙂
