Use this fire safety craft to help reinforce the importance of not playing with fire. Younger students can make the 2-piece dangler; older students can make the larger 3 dimensional flame and use it to write about 3 different aspects of fire safety (one on each flame). The packet includes a list of 13 fire safety writing prompts that students can choose from. I truly believe that if you have super-interesting prompts, your students will be excited about writing and WANT to get right down to business! This packet will be FREE for an entire year (!) woo hoo. After which time, it will be revamped and put in Diane's Dollar Deals, in my TpT shop. Click on the link to zip on over.
Reinforce fire safety practices with this easy craftivity, where students promise to never play with fire. The flames are a child's hand prints. (Look closely and you'll see that they've been crinkled to look more like flames.) Older students attach their "bonfire" to a writing prompt paper, (2 choices) color and complete the prompt. I've included a "We Promise" pledge poster for everyone to sign. This craftivity has been up-dated and is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop.

Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or look sweet hanging back-to-back from the ceiling.
