Fire Prevention Week is here, and if you are like me, sometimes it sneaks up on you and you forget! So I usually just put it on my calendar that all of October is a great time to learn more about fire safety with my kids. I teach a lot through fire safety read alouds, and I also help my kids build vocabulary around fire safety with these fun Fire Safety Writing Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Fire Safety Writing Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten
When introducing our writing center activities, I give instructions and we practice routines early in the year. Then as I change out themes later on, kids know what to do and can complete them independently!
For these fire safety writing centers, students will be introduced to the following vocabulary words: fire, alarm bell, firefighter, smoke, fire truck, fire hydrant, extinguisher, and exit.
The vocabulary cards come 4 to a page (8 words total) and are great to discuss beforehand what the items are and what their purpose is. Just be sure to laminate them for durability and reuse before adding them to your writing centers!
Let’s check out some of the fun activities included!
Mini “Write It!” Book
The mini “Write It!” books are great for labeling and can be used in your literacy centers, in small groups, or as a whole class activity if you put the words in a pocket chart. It’s a great way to introduce the vocabulary words!
The kids pick a card, find the matching picture in their book, and record the word in their best handwriting. There’s even a word for tracing before they write the word themselves!
Write It! Strips
Kids love dry erase markers (at least mine do!) so when I add these vocabulary strips to our writing centers, they get so excited!
Just print the strips, laminate them, and then add them to your centers with the vocabulary cards. Your students can write, erase, and write again for tons of themed writing fun!
Fire Safety “Write the Room”
This is one of our favorite activities to use with the vocabulary cards! It is like a traditional “Write the Room” activity, but you can choose how you use it with your students because it’s so versatile.
Set out the recording sheets at a table with the cards in a pocket chart for kids to see and simply record the words, hide them in a sensory bin, or post them all around the room on the walls and let kids walk around with clipboards as they label the pictures.
However you decide to use this activity, it’s sure to be a hit!
Fire Safety Story Book
The fire safety story book is great for a continued project or themed journal. You could even send it home for kids to discuss fire safety in their homes!
You can print the pages double-sided and use the cover page to create a journal, or just use single pages as writing prompts in your writing centers if you prefer.
The goal is for kids to write a few sentences or a short story about the fire safety picture.
There are even more engaging writing activities in this pack including a Trace, Cut, and Paste activity!
Plus, at the end of the file, all of the color items also come in black and white for an ink-saving option!
