Last week was fire safety week at school. Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Sandy making it so windy here in Ohio, the TTH class was cancelled on Tuesday, so they did not get to discuss fire safety prior to the fire station field trip.
Monday, Ms. N talked to
the kiddos about what to do if there was a fire in their house. She
taught them house to crawl under the smoke to the door and get out of
the house. She also talked with them about what to do if their clothes
caught on fire. We practiced "Stop, Drop & Roll" in the afternoon.
Ms. K made a fire truck craft with the kiddos. Ms. K had the circles
traced on black paper (with a white crayon) for the wheels and a circle
on the yellow paper for the hose. Ms. K had white strips cut out for
them to piece together a ladder, and a black rectangle for the window.
The kiddos cut out the circles and then glued everything together.
field trip to the Rootstown Fire Station on Thursday and Friday was a
huge success, as usual. The kiddos love going and seeing all of the
fire trucks, sitting up in them and trying on Firefighter Gabe's hat and

will reschedule the letter R for the TTH class sometime in March so we
can keep everyone on the same schedule for letters until then. We will
talk a little about fire safety with them this week also.
Have a good week!
