Fire prevention week is October 9th-15th. The theme this year is
Don't Wait Check the Date.
Did you know smoke alarms are only good for 10 years?
Here in California we hear a lot about fires, especially lately. I like to bring in a household smoke detector and set it off to show them what it sounds like. Ours at school however, is quite different. We had a fire drill last week after our kindergartners went home and lets just say my ears are still ringing- I'm not exaggerating- it is one long beep. that is far too loud. My job was to make sure all the doors were locked. The bells are over the doors. Next time I will wear ear plugs.
We will be reading many books about fire fighters and and fire safety all week long. I've been gathering books for this theme for a few years now.
Our literacy and math centers will be Fire Safety themed focussing on beginning of the year skills. You can find this set in my TpT store. This set has two printing options color and B/W for those who need to save ink.
These are the books we will be reading. I love My Mom is a Firefighter. If you click the book cover the link will take you directly to Amazon.

Have a great week- I hope to come back and share a video I'm working on. I'll let you know how it goes.
