The skills we worked on this week were making number sentences with the center Fire Dog Math. Students rolled 2 dice and added spots to the fire dog to match the number on the dice then wrote a number sentence to go with it. We had a center called Short Vowel Word Ladders. Students sorted pictures onto the fire ladders using the correct vowel sound and then sound spelled each of the words. At Fire Dog Counting they put fire hydrants, fire badges, and fire extinguishers in order counting by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. The listening center was Clifford the Firehouse Dog. Students then made a Clifford puppet with the fire safety rule of stop, drop, and roll written on it. They had to solve a “3 Alarm Fire” by organizing 3 numbers in order from least to greatest. Our writing center was making complete sentences about fire safety rules.
We used lots of literature to learn more about being “Smoke Detectives” and our fire safety rules. We then made these cute firehouse dogs and wrote about what we will do to be fire safe!
Remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and make sure your family has a safe meeting place in case of a fire!
