Instructions:

  1.  Review with the learners the fire safety rules.
  2. Hand out the Totetude Firetruck Printable and discuss the different parts of a firetruck.  Point to the ladder and say, "What numbers are on the ladder?  What are those numbers for?"  Point to the wheels and say, "They say stop, drop, and roll.  Why would the wheels say stop, drop, and roll?  Point to the hose and say, "What is this hose for?  Where do the firefighters get water from to put out a large fire?"  Point to the siren on top of the firetruck and ask learners what it is and what it does.
  3. Have the learners color their firetruck.
  4. They can either glue their photo in the driver window or draw a firefighter sitting there.
  5. They can also glue a piece of yarn over the hose.

Extension:

  • Have learners practice dialling 9-1-1 and asking for a firetruck.  Make sure they remember to pretend to call from a neighbor's home.

Reflections:

  • I am able to color within boundaries of a drawing.
  • I am able to paste objects within boundaries.
  • I am able to sit in a chair with my back straight and my feet flat on the floor.
