1-2-3 Come Do Some More Fire Safety Activities With Me
I do a variety of themes each month, so I like to design some basic activities that practice the standards using that particular theme.
With that in mind, since October is Fire Safety Month, I designed this jumbo fire safety packet, filled with a variety of activities, worksheets, and games that will PRACTICE ...

Besides this jumbo fire safety-themed packet that covers a variety of standards, I also designed a "Thank You Firefighters" packet.
Our local fire department comes with their truck, to show and explain things to our students.
Afterwards, my kiddos are always eager to share what was their favorite thing that they saw/did, so it’s a perfect time to dive into some fun writing prompts.
They also want to make a card to thank the firefighters for coming and all that they do for us.
With that in mind, I designed this “Thank You Firefighters!” packet which also includes:
* A “Fire drill procedures” poster you can hang above your school’s instruction list and map.
* A Venn diagram comparing a fire drill with a severe weather drill.
There's a color copy to do as a whole group activity, as well as a BW version so you can check comprehension when students fill in their own.
* A colorful “Thank you!” poster every one can sign
* A boy and girl firefighter “color me” poster, where children write a thank you note in the box
* A colorful fire truck “Thank You!” card cover. Simply attach the blank paper and have everyone sign their name, which is great practice for little ones working on that skill.
* A “color me” fire truck thank you note
* A whole group discussion “Things We Learned Today:” poster, with a matching BW one if you want older students to make their own.
* A "Hats Off To Firefighters!” writing prompt craftivity, plus the following writing prompt worksheets:
* A boy and girl “color me” firefighter "Here are a few things that I learned from the firefighters..."
* “Would you like to be a firefighter?
* “My favorite thing about today was…”
* “Your clothes are on fire! What should you do?”
* “Your house is on fire! What should you do?”
* “My family has a fire plan!”
* “It’s a fire drill! Here’s what we do . . .”
* Transitional writing: “What to do during a fire drill” (First, then, next, last) worksheet.
Any of the above completed projects make a sweet fire safety bulletin board too.
Finally, I truly believe that if students write fire safety rules down, they are reinforced so much better than when they just hear them, plus in so doing, it’s also a great way to send that information home, so children can share it with their families. With that in mind there’s also a “color me” fire safety writing prompt worksheet as well.
Today's featured FREEBIE also has a fire safety theme. It's a "Hands Off Fire!" craftivity, which is a quick, easy and fun writing prompt.
Adding the interesting hand print “fire” at the top will get students excited about doing this project, and completed prompts will make an awesome bulletin board.
Have your students sign the “We promise to keep our hands off fire” poster, and display it in the middle.
There are two different writing prompts to choose from, plus a blank page to dream up your own.
I've also included a "Never Ever Play With Fire" song poster.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
It's a breezy day, but perfect for a nice long walk with my poodle pup Chloe. Wishing you a relaxing and fun-filled day.
