What do I want to be when I grow up? We've been studying about community helpers. The children had the opportunity to show what they would like to be when they grow up. Do you recognize any of these young career people?
The Elk County Fire Fighters visited us on October 12 to talk about fire safety. The fire fighter talked about the importance of not leaving chargers plugged in and being safe with candles. The children didn't get to go out to the fire trucks because of the heavy rain, but they did get to look through the thermal imaging camera. This allows the firefighter to locate people in a smoke filled room.
Last week, the children learned about fire safety. As part of the unit, the children finger painted with red and yellow to make fire and find out what color red and yellow makes. The next day, they reviewed shapes and made fire trucks. They drew rungs on the ladder to practice the touch, pull down stroke for when they start writing. The children enjoyed the activity and were proud of their art project.
