October is Fire Safety month and so we have been learning about fire safety in the MHP library. Kindergarten children have helped to create a chart of fire safety rules and several children have demonstrated how to "stop, drop and roll". We learned where our rescue window is and how we will leave the library if there is a real emergency. We look forward to seeing the fire fighters next week.
First grade children have been using the Kidspiration computer software to create a web of fire information. We identified vehicles used in fire fighting, equipment fire fighters use, clothing worn at a fire, and safety rules. We will be ready to talk to the fire fighters next week.
