1-2-3 Come Sing A Fire Safety Song With Me
Almost 15 years ago, my 1st graders enjoyed singing my version of The Wheels On The Bus Go 'Round and 'Round, as I'd add all sorts of extra goofy things to the traditional favorite.
When October rolled around, and we were studying fire safety, I thought it would be fun to substitute a fire truck for the bus. My kiddos loved it.
Well it's years later and I decided to build a Common Core packet around this silly little song. While doing research, I even found a few people who had the same idea. ("Great minds think alike and all that..." )
Any woo, what started out to be just a few things, morphed into a whopping 69-page packet, and believe me, my brain is a bit fried.
I had a few requests for some fire safety themed alphabet and number cards, so I threw them into the mix, and one thing led to another...
Take a peek, pick the items that suit your fancy, and let the fun begin.
The Packet Includes:
Students place the uppercase letter circle on the first wheel and then match the lowercase letter circle to the back wheel.

While looking for fire truck ideas, I came across a super-simple fire truck Make a Vehicle game over at Enchanted Learning.
I always liked to give my Y5's some computer time, and this would make a quick, easy and fun independent activity to practice keyboarding skills etc.
I also found an excellent video on YouTube featuring real fire trucks. It's only 2:44 minutes long. My grandson was revited, but then he's only 2 and everything is pretty exciting.
If you're teaching numbers 1-10, Monster Fire Trucks is also a rather short video (4:18) that's kind of cute. Certainly attention grabbing.
Well that's it for today. (Where has it gone?) I hope your kiddos enjoy learning, as their own wheels start turning. I'm off for a romp outside to unclutter my mind. Wishing you a fabulous fall!
