1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Fire Safety Activities With Me

fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety centers, fire safety games, fire safety songs, good and bad fires, end punctuation activitiesI think one of the most important things that I teach my Y5s is fire safety; however, with all of our discussions about not playing with matches, houses burning down, and people getting hurt, I discovered that my students were coming away with the idea that fire was bad.

Simply ask for a thumbs up or down whether your kiddos think fire is good or bad; and I think you’ll find like I did, that most, if not all of your students will give you a thumbs down, emphatically believing that fire is bad!

fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety centers, fire safety games, fire safety songs, good and bad fires, end punctuation activitiesSince fire is truly beneficial and a necessary part of everyday life, I feel there’s a need to explain this to young children.

It’s important that they learn to respect fire without fearing it. Children need to understand the difference between good fires and bad fires, as well as fire’s beneficial and harmful effects.

With these things in mind, I created this “Good Fire-Bad Fire” packet. These quick, easy & fun activities will help children develop a healthy understanding of fire, so they are able to identify fire as a necessary part of their lives and an essential tool.

The packet includes:

hotdogs* A simple way to help students realize that fire can be good is to show them pictures, so I've included 65 real photographs of fires which can be categorized by children as good or bad.
Choose a dozen or so and use them for . . .



fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety centers, fire safety games, fire safety songs, good and bad fires, end punctuation activities* flashcards, where students give you a thumbs up or down,
* discussion
* an independent center where children sort the photographs into the 2 “good/bad fire” file folders

*a puzzle center (Cut the photographs in half or in quarters).
* writing prompts (There are 4 graphic organizers, plus 6 “complete the prompt” worksheets for this)
* a bulletin board displaying the pictures under the “good fire/bad fire” header cards.

fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety centers, fire safety games, fire safety songs, good and bad fires, end punctuation activities* I’ve also included a “Flip the Flame” craftivity, where students color, cut and glue the “happy” good flame and the “angry” bad flame back-to-back on a Popsicle stick.

You show a photograph asking “Is this a good or bad fire?” Children flip their flame and hold up their answer.

After sharing and discussing the photographs, children will be able to see that each type of fire has common denominators: good fires are planned, desired, beneficial and supervised by an adult; bad fires are not.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board or hallway wall display too. 

fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety centers, fire safety games, fire safety songs, good and bad fires, end punctuation activitiesYounger kiddos can show this knowledge with several worksheet options.

I've included full color patterns, so you can easily make a sample to share, or use for further explanation.

good fire bad fire activities, good fire photographs, fire safety games, fire safety activities, fire safety centers, fire safety songs, 911 songs, fire safety crafts, end punctuation activitiesThe good fire-bad fire sorting worksheet (see photograph) could also be made into an independent center.

Simply laminate and trim the pieces.  To make this self-correcting, put a G or B on the back of each picture.

* The packet also includes a graphing activity, several other worksheets, posters and a bookmark

Besides being able to differentiate between good and bad fires, I wanted another way to review all of the fire safety rules my students were learning. 

good fire bad fire activities, good fire photographs, fire safety games, fire safety activities, fire safety centers, fire safety songs, 911 songs, fire safety crafts, end punctuation activitiesAs with many of my activities, I like to "kill two birds with one stone",  so I designed these "Fire Safety Fix the Sentence" cards. 

These 36, fire safety-themed sentence cards, are a quick, easy and fun way to review a variety of fire safety related facts, while practicing capitalization and end punctuation.

Read the cards together as a whole group to practice a lot of Dolch sight words.
Choose a student to come up and using a dry erase marker, circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation. (period, question mark & exclamation point).

For more practice, as an individual activity, have students choose X number of mini cards and rewrite the sentences correctly on the worksheet provided. 

fire safety activities, fire safety crafts, fire safety songs, 911 activities, 911 songs, fire safety writing prompts, good and bad fires, fire safety rules, fire safety posters, fire safety bulletin boards, end punctuation activitiesOne of the most important fire safety rules that I teach my students, is about dialing 9-1-1 in an emergency. So today's FREEBIE features a 9-1-1 song to the tune of "This Old Man".

There are 3 poster options for you to choose from.  I hope your kiddos enjoy it as much as mine.

fire safety activities, fire safety craftsWell that's it for today. I'm still in a daze that September is over and we are now in October!

My grama Lydia always said "The older you get the faster time flies." Now that I'm in my "sexy sixties" I find that to be especially true! 

Wishing you a day filled with sunshine and laughter for a happily-ever-after.

When October rolled around, and we were studying fire safety, I thought it would be fun to substitute a fire truck for the bus.  My kiddos loved it. 

Well it's years later and I decided to build a Common Core packet around this silly little song.  While doing research, I even found a few people who had the same idea. ("Great minds think alike and all that..." )

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. 

fire safety activities, fire safety games, 911 activities, list of when to call 911, hidden pictures, 100s chart, 100s chart activities, writing numbers from 1-100, 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.

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.

fire safety number puzzles cov 2I'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.

To complete the CCSS shape standard, and review spatial directions, have students place the dog bone above, behind, under, beside etc. 

I've also included a spotless dog for you to program for other things, as well as a black and white spotted puppy so students can color it. (Use as a topper for writing prompts etc.)

Fire Fighters On A Roll - A Fun Game For Fire Safety Week

fire safety lessons, fire safety gameDirections:

  1. fire safety game, fire safety activities, fire safety lessons, Buy a bag of fire fighters at The Dollar Store.  They come in red or yellow and are the old-fashioned stand-up army kind of figures.  My bag had 24 in it, so there was enough for my entire class.
  2. You can laminate the playing sheets and keep the fire fighters in a Ziploc Baggie to be used each year, or do what I do and give each child their own fire fighter and playing sheet to take home, as a reminder of fire safety week and not to play with fire.
  3. My Y5’s are thrilled with this little plastic figure and a dollar is a small price to pay for them to be able to play this game at home reinforcing the important lessons they have learned.

The object of the game is to get your fire fighter to the fire.

  • Roll a 3 and go 3 spaces backwards.
  • Roll a 6 and lose your turn.
  • Roll a 5 and you can change places with another player.
  • Roll a 1,2, or 4 and go that many dots forward.
  • The 1st one to the fire is the winner.
  • If you land on a space that has 911 written on it, you have the choice to move one extra space forward or roll the dice again.

fire_safety_game, fire safety lessons, fire safety activities,While they are playing the game, to help reinforce the fire safety lessons that they have learned, I encourage my students to say things like: “Stay low and go!”, “Stop-drop-and roll.”, “Dial 911 to get things done.” ,“I’ll stay alert so I won’t get hurt!”, or “I’m smart so I won’t play with matches.” or a fact that they learned about fire safety, like check the batteries in the smoke detector, or have an exit strategy and practice it etc.  I tell them to say this fact when it is their turn to move their figure.

If you want the game to last longer, or be more math-involved, you can have them have to roll an exact number, to get to the fire, in order to win the game.  i.e., if they are 2 spaces away from landing on the fire, they must roll a 2.
