Fire! Fire!

Last Thursday was all about fire safety!  We took our first field trip of the year to The Memphis Fire Museum.  It is free to schools in the area and is a great (and beneficial) experience.  I wish I could show you the faces of my sweet ones so you can see just how much fun we had!


We learned a poem called "Fire! Fire!" and added it to our journals.  It's from the fabulous Deedee Wills and she has offered it as a freebie on her site {here}.  LOVE this! Thanks Mrs.Wills!

We also enjoyed this cute book:
(You can click the picture or here to read the description of the book.)

No fun day is complete without yummy food, right?  :)  Here are our edible fire trucks we made.  Forgive the pink icing....my red food coloring just wasn't enough to overpower the white frosting.

 I found this idea when searching through images on Google.  We painted graham crackers red (pink...) and then added oreo cookies, cheese-it crackers, gumdrops, and pretzel sticks.

We reviewed all that we learned by putting together another one of A Cupcake For The Teacher's awesome craftivities.  Not only is the craft cute as can be but I love how the kids get to illustrate each page of their fire safety booklet.  Thanks Mrs. Cupcake! :)
I think I was so exhausted by the end of the day I forgot to take pictures of my kids' work! Oops.

How do you do to teach fire safety?
