Fire Safety Freebie

Fire Safety Week is next week, so we started learning about being fire smart this past week. Next Friday the Fire Department and SWAT Team will come and visit us! Woo hoo!

Here are some of the things the students have been working in...
 The Firefighter repeated text pocket chart activity. We use this text during shared reading. Using the repeated text daily helps the students so much. When the kids go to centers I see them reading each line, matching the illustrations to the correct text and finding the high frequency words within the sentences.
My kids are working on beginning and ending sounds. At the Sounds of the Engine center the students are working on identifying the beginning and ending sounds of words. This is helping so much during independent writing time.
Spots at the Firehouse is another way that my students are practicing their word wall words. My students are totally into dice this year...last year it was dominoes?! Who knows...but whatever works right?!!

In math the students have been working on sequencing numbers. In the activity the students sequence the number tiles to serve as a number line. Then the students rolled a dice wrote the number in the hose and then wrote the next three numbers after the initial number. All the students were so engaged, and even though it can be a difficult concept, it came easily to most! Love those kind of activities!!!!

The students are practicing sorting and graphing too!

Here is a freebie for you to use in your fire safety centers! Click the picture to get your copy! I hope you enjoy!

Tomorrow we will be making this fun little Fire Safety Dog! I can't believe it is already Friday...happy dance time!

  1. great freebie opportunity. share it with freebies.

  2. Just came across your blog! We just started following you! We love the fire safety materials they look so cute! Especially the fire dog craft! Thanks for sharing. We just started a blog and have some cute freebies as well! We hope you follow us and check out our blog!

  3. Children who love learning should give them as much as possible to learn. Because it is in this age only when things will remain in memory for the lifetime. As a parent I recommend everyone to start inculcating health and safety related knowledge into their children.
