I need to give a shout out to some very special men in our community. These men are from Station 35. They've been very active with the students in the school. Lately they've put on a production titled Fire Clowns, where they left their everything on a stage to teach students about fire safety. They've also been in the classroom working with small groups on math facts. Last week they played a game of mine called Super Hero Subtraction Sticks. And last, but not least, the 2nd grade class visited their station to conclude our Readers Theater titled A Trip to the Fire Station. During the fieldtrip the firemen set up an obstacle course (resembling a bedroom, window and safety area) to help students practice techniques for how to get out in an emergency. They also showed us the manly tools on the fire truck. Let me tell you, the jaws of life are for real!
Thank you Station 35 for making a positive difference in the lives of children. Your support in the classroom is appreciated! Click here for a writing page freebie my class used when they learned fire safety rules. Maybe you can use it next year during Fire Safety Week.
