Community Helpers

We have been meeting with a lot of librarians around the state of Texas, and we asked for suggestions for topics for videos and resource pages for our web sites and search engines.  "Community Helpers" was one of the many requests, so I have just finished an intensive search of web sites that help teach children about community helpers.
As a result, I have posted a new resource page on Kidtopia.info for PK-3 on Community Helpers,
plus I created a YouTube video (http://youtu.be/4y-YNZjziSc) on the topic.  One of my children's librarians at our local library posed for the video, by the way.  
I am using iMovie to create my videos and still learning a lot.  (What do you think???)  
I have also posted on the video on Vimeo in case you can't access YouTube from your school.

I really need some input from elementary teachers.  (I was a secondary teacher, secondary librarian, and an administrator.)  Am I on the right track?  Is the vocabulary on the right level? I would love to hear from you.  Please post a comment below.  

Also, send us requests for new resources and/or YouTube videos.
