1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Fire Safety Activities With Me
I'm going to continue to design fire safety activities for the next few days. As stated in a previous article, I truly believe it's so important to plug something in about dialing 911 in an emergency, plus a few other fire safety rules during Fire Prevention Month.
Because I know we are all pressed for time, these are simple, easy and quick to do.
Whenever possible, I try to include a standard, such is the case with the Fire Safety Hidden 911 In A 100s Chart activity.
I've included a blank 100's grid for older students to practice writing to 100, as they fill in the numbers.
However, even if your kiddos can't count that high yet, refer them to the 100's chart you have hanging in your room and have them copy the numbers. (How many can they fill in before they have to take a peek at the chart?)
For younger students, there's a 100s chart that's filled in. The directions on the side of their worksheet, tell them to color in certain numbered boxes, to reveal a hidden number.
I've included a completed sample that you can hold up and say: "Is this the number you found?" You can then discuss or review the importance of the number and when you should call 911.

If you're looking for a list to share with your students, of when it's OK to dial 911, click on the link for my Who Ya' Gonna Call?" fire safety (dialing 911 in an emergency) booklet.
You can simply make a copy to read to your students, or run off copies of the 2-page booklet, so that children can practice tracing and writing 911.
A 3rd page can be added for older students, where they make a list of more examples of when they should dial 911. When they're done, they illustrate their page.
Finally, another quick and easy way to reinforce dialing 911 in an emergency, is with a fire safety number puzzle,which will also help reinforce number sequencing from 1-10, counting backwards from 10-1 and skip counting by 10's to 100.
I've included full color copies for you to print, laminate and trim. Keep these in Ziplock Baggies and use for independent centers and something for "early finishers" to do.
There are also some puzzles in black and white. Run these off so that students can color their puzzle and then cut it apart.
For an interesting mosaic piece of art, give students a variety of colors of construction paper, they glue their puzzle pieces on it, leaving a little gap between each piece.
Completed projects make an interesting bulletin board. Click on the link to view/download the 12 Fire Safety Number Puzzles.
Thanks for visiting today. Time to get hustling on a long list of errands. Wishing you many relaxing moments . . .
