Remembering 911- Who do we call in danger? Practice dialing 911 on pretend phone. 3. Where would we go if we had a fire at school? At home? Discuss safe zones and meeting places. 4. Look at pictures of Fireman in full gear. Discuss what each piece of equipment does in protecting the fireman. Remind children not to be afraid of Fireman. 5. Have a fireman come to the classroom and complete on site field trip, document under special activities. 6. What do Fireman ride? Where do Fireman work?

Teaching Concepts for Distance Learning


Move, Play and Learn Fire Safety big and small, fast and slow.

Brainstorm opposites such as big/small, fast/slow, loud/quiet, wide/narrow, high/low, heavy/light.

In a big space: Move across the space that space starting with the first concept and end with its opposite. Example: players could begin by running very slow, gradually getting faster until they reach the other side. Or they can start by marching with big body and, as they cross the yard, gradually become smaller until they reach the end.

In a small space: Instead of moving across the space play the game by staying in place. Example: Marching in place, begin with big march to small march etc.


Homemade music

Use old coffee cans, make sure there are no rough edges. Remove paper around can and allow child/children to decorate it any way they desire. Tape/glue lid in place and use this as drum. Create different rhythms, beats, or try to repeat sounds played from their favorite songs.

Take plastic two plastic spoons, dried rice, beans, sand or beads. With a spoon place dried material in a spoon place second spoon on top and tape together, children can color the spoons to their desire. Create different rhythms, beats, or try to repeat sounds played from their favorite songs. Use these instruments while playing 1.Community Helpers by Shaun Brown 2.
