This week was National Fire Prevention Week so we have been busy learning all about fire safety. We have read lots of books that taught us many important fire safety rules. One of our favorites was called Stop,Drop & Roll by Margery Cuyler. We also talked about what to do if our clothing caught on fire and the importance of having an escape plan and a family meeting place in case there really was a fire at our house.
A few of the students from our class even got to go up on stage and help out. Here’s Raulie being sung to sleep so he could help demonstrate what to do if he woke up in the middle of the night and smelled smoke or heard the fire detector in his house going off.
We also stayed busy at centers this week too!! We worked on ordering numbers from 0-50, writing and solving addition math problems, unscrambling fire safety sentences, sorting words by endings (-at, –ap, –an), stamping pictures and writing the missing beginning, middle and ending sounds, putting sets of words in ABC order, listening to a story about fireman and reviewing our short vowel sounds on the mini laptops.
