Fire Safety

I’m so excited because we leave tomorrow for DisneyWorld!  Owen will miss a few days of preschool and their unit on Fire Safety, so I thought I might have a chance to share a few things with him, just to introduce the topic.

I already shared a lot of my Fire Safety unit, if you are interested just type “fire safety’ into the search bar.  I always think a song is a great way to help children remember facts, so I wanted to sing this song with Owen.  I found it at do2learn.com/games/song/firesafetysong/song.htm.  On their great site you can hear the song, but if you don’t remember the tune I just sing it to a sloppy rendition of the Farmer in the Dell.

I think this song does a good job introducing and explaining basic fire safety rules very simply.  I wrote out the words for Owen (have I bragged about what a super reader he is?) and also made a chart of the basic rules.

I thought he might also miss out on a discussion of Stop, Drop and Roll, so I made another chart for him.  I am cutting out some orange felt “flames” that I can stick onto the kids’ clothes.  We will practice what they would do if their clothes ever caught on fire.

I sing that to the tune of Three Blind Mice.

We all had a great time at the Commerce Township Fire Safety Open House last weekend, even though it was a rainy day!  Lily was the only one willing to squirt the fire hose, but we all had fun!
