Last week we had two different themes in Kindergarten All-Stars. We celebrated color week and also learned about fire safety and how firefighters help keep us safe. We read the book “Stop, Drop, and Roll” and discussed different ways we could keep ourselves safe if there ever is a fire at our houses or at school. Then students wrote about what they learned.
During Social Studies we used one of the fire safety strategies, don’t touch hot things, and we sorted items based on if they were safe to touch or not safe to touch.
We also combined our unit on fire safety with color week and worked on matching numbers with the correct color words and coloring a firefighter page. This helped student learn how to read color words as well as number recognition.
For art students students created fire trucks with the words Stop, Drop, and Roll to display another fire safety tip on what to do if our clothes catch fire.
We finished up with fire safety week with a variety of different activities. We learned about the different tools and items that fire fighters use by reading the book Firehouse Dog and then they learned about how to use labels by labeling different fire fighter items. We also made and read fire a safety words book.
For writing we discussed the things we’ve learned about fire safety and made a list. With the list we then wrote about about one thing we could do to stay safe in case of a fire.
The month of October is fire safety month so we have been learning what to do if there is ever a fire, as well things that we shouldn’t play with. We started on Monday with fire safety related literacy & math centers from Having Fun in Primary. There were also a few centers from Home School Creations.
We discussed how there are things that are not safe for kids to touch or play with, we then sorted pictures into two categories ‘safe to touch‘ and ‘not safe to touch‘. During free choice centers students got to sort the pictures on their own, working with a partner.
Finally today we read the story Stop Drop and Roll by Margery Cuyler and made a firetruck craft courtesy of Miss-Kindergarten.

Since October is fire safety month, firefighters from our community came in and show the students their gear and discussed ways to stay safe when there is a fire. At the end of the presentation students got to practice fire safety in their test house.
We read the story “Stop, Drop, and Roll” and talked about ways to stay safe if there is a fire. Then we made fire engines with the words ‘stop, drop, and roll’ on them.
This week we started fire safety week and we talked about how firefighters help keep us safe in case of a fire. We read the book “Firefighters A-Z” and watched fire at Hooper’s store video from Sesame Street. Afterwards we made a list of things that firefighters need to help keep us safe. Then we wrote about one of the items.

As we move along with our community helpers unit we learned about firefighters and watched a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood video that showed us about firefighters. We also learned that not only do firefighters help put out fires, we also learned that they teach us about fire safety. We then read a book called “Stop, Drop, and Roll” and completed a sentence starter telling our audience that we would remember to do if there was a fire.
