Fire Safety Week

We had a busy week learning about Fire Safety and practicing with a surprise fire drill at school. We started our week making a list of things that the students knew about to be “fire safe”. We read the story Dot the Fire Dog and  made “Dot” with a fire safety book to attach to our art job of “Dot the Fire Dog”.

All of our centers this week were Fire Safety themed. They put Fire Dogs in order from least to greatest using numbers 1-50. At our listening center they listened to Clifford and the Fire House. They made a Clifford puppet with Stop, Drop, and Roll written on it to help them remember if their clothes catch on fire what to do.

Another center they did was Fire Dog Math. They rolled two dice and used black spots to add to the fire dogs to match the dice and then wrote number sentences using the number of dots on each dog.  They used fire safety words to put in ABC order as they went up to the top of a ladder.

They sorted pictures onto short vowel ladders and used the vowels of short a, e, i, and o to spell words. To finish up the week they wrote and illustrated about their fire escape plan. Some of our favorite books we read this week were Stop, Drop and Roll, Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill, and Arthur’s Fire Drill to help us understand all our fire safety rules and to learn the importance of having a fire escape plan in place.

  3. Wow! Who would’ve thought that learning fire safety tips can be as fun as this one?! This approach will surely help kids to remember everything about the fire safety. I think aside from these safety tips, kids should also be taught about fire prevention.
