Back in October, during Fire Safety, week we did a unit all about fire safety and the letter F.
We used this book, No Dragons for Tea by Jean Pendziwol. I had never read this book before and we loved it! It was such a perfect story to teach about fire safety and what to do if there is a fire.
Hunter loves using these do-a-dot markers, so we usually do one of these letter worksheets with each letter.
Hunter glued red, yellow, and orange pieces of paper onto a letter F to look like fire.
Hunter colored firetrucks different colors, according to the color word.
Hunter worked in a Fireman counting book- he counted the different items and then circled the number that corresponded.
We learned about Stop, Drop, and Roll and then Hunter colored a paper about it.
I made some pretend flames and laminated them. I also wrote numbers on them to practice identifying numbers. Then I covered a spray bottle with red tape and made it look like a fire extinguisher. Hunter loved spraying the flames!
Hunter made a little fireman hat.
I made this cute firetruck with our co-op preschool class. This is Hunter’s firetruck.
Hunter mixed together yellow and red paint on a flame shaped paper. He was very impressed to see it turn orange.
Then we practiced saying- Don’t hide! Go outside!
And of course, we went on a field trip to a fire station.
It was super fun week!
One of the books we read last week for our Fire Safety theme had a dalmatian in it named Dot. So, Hailey decided that she wanted to make Dot the Dalmatian.
You’ll need: red and black construction paper, google eyes, glue and a paper bowl.
Cut out a tongue, ears and spots. I used a 3 hole punch to cut out a bunch of spots for the dog.
Glue the spots onto the bowl.
Add the eyes, ears and tongue. Then Hailey told me we needed to add a hat just like Dot in the book had. So, I did my best to make a hat.
The completed Dot the Dalmatian.
Since last week was Fire Safety Week we did some fire safety art projects. I had a bunch of them planned but we got busy and ran out of time to do everything. I do have a couple of ideas to share though.
Put some yellow and red paint on a piece of paper.
Spread and mix the paint using a cotton ball until it looks like fire. I ended up having to add more yellow to try to get the orange look I was hoping for.
Then cut out some pieces to make a fire truck
Glue the fire truck together.
Glue the fire truck onto the fire.
The finished fire truck.
