This week in 4k we will be talking about fire safety and the letter D. To start our day off talking about fire safety, we first talked about what we already know about fire safety. Today in our morning circle we talked about calling 911 for help. We read a book about calling 911 and when it is okay to call. We also talked about how we never call 911 for fun, only in an emergency. We practiced dialing 911 and finding the numbers on a telephone.
Today we had our "party" for filling our good behavior bucket. We all got to wear golw in the dark bracelets and watched Caillou and the firetruck. In the video we learned that firefighters even help us when our pets get stuck and they need our help.
Today at snack we watched a video on the letter D. It was a lot of fun!
In center time today we did a lot of fun activities that revolved around fire safety. In art today we did a color by number firefighter. Every kid had to match the correct color to the number. They really enjoyed looking for the numbers. In writing today we practiced writing our names! Have your child practice at home! We have been working really hard on writing our letters correctly! We are becoming rockstar writers! In sensory today we practiced using our fine motor skills. We used a squirt bottle to put out fires! The fires all had numbers on them and the kids had to squirt the numbers in number order. Some of them just said the numbers as they aimed for the fires! It was a big hit in class today! :)
Today in car area we got some new toys! Today we were introduced to a new firetruck for the car area! It makes noise and the lights flash! We had a lot of fun rescuing the toys in our car area. We even have new firefighters in our car area this week.
When we were outside today, we pretended we were firefighters and we practiced going down the firepole and putting out fires.
