October 9-13


Fire Safety was the theme for the week in the Kindergarten classroom. We started the week with a visit from some firefighters from the Litchfield Fire Department. They came to teach us about fire safety. We also got to look through one of the fire trucks and practice shooting water with the fire hose. We spent the rest of the week learning about fire safety. First we reviewed what to do if the fire alarm goes off at school. We practiced quietly lining up and walking out the door and down the sidewalk to our meeting place. Now that we have an escape plan at school, we talked about the importance of having an escape plan and special meeting spot at home. We also identified several different fire safety tips such as have 2 ways out, stay low and go, stop, drop, cover your face, and roll. We each had to write and illustrate one fire safety tip. Then we turned them into a new class book, Fire Safety Tips. At the end of the week, we had some fun making a fire picture while learning about mixing paint colors. We put a blob of yellow paint and a blob of red paint on a piece of paper. When we mixed it together, it turned orange. We made it look like flames. Once our paint was dry we added a house and a fire truck to our paper. A highlight of the week was making fire truck crackers. We took ordinary graham crackers and decorated them to look like fire trucks. Then we got to eat them! We ended the week with Chip and Dale, the Rescue Rangers, teaching us about fire safety.
