F is for Fire Safety Week

We have started letter Ff this week and Fire Safety Week as well.  We learned all about firefighters today, what they do and how they can help us.  We read the book “Firefighters to the Rescue!” by Kersten Hamilton and learned the poem/finger play Five Little Firefighters.  Then for art we made the Five Little Firefighters out of the children’s hand prints and made cute Dalmation paper bag puppets!  We had a fun and busy Monday!  Look for more to come as we learn all about fish and more Fire Safety.

Five Little Firefighters

Five little firefighters spray the fire,

The first one says, “Put the ladder higher!”

The second one says, “This fire’s getting hot!”

The third one says, “Give the hose another shot.”

The fourth one says, “Take a look about.”

The fifth one says, “The fire is all out!”
