Fire Safety Activities
In health, we will be talking all about fire safety. After reading about how to be safe around fire, we will make this fire safety anchor chart:
Students can then write about how they will be safe in case of a fire.

Firefighter Activities for Kindergarten
In literacy this week, we will be using Little Readers October with the book Fire! Fuego! Brave Bomberos. This story is a great diverse picture book to add to your collection.
Our fire safety poem for shared reading is an original poem written by me for Little Readers October!
We will read this firefighter poem every day, add it to our poetry notebooks, and then add the emergent reader version to our book boxes at the end of the week.
An original nonfiction book is included to learn all about firefighters! If you don’t own this unit, you can find more nonfiction firefighter books here.
You can record all the information that students learn about firefighters and add it to a firefighter anchor chart:
Firefighter Emergent Reader
This free firefighter emergent reader is perfect for guided reading or just for fun!
Students will read about different items that a firefighter has. You can grab this reader here.
Free Firetruck Craft
This firetruck craft is perfect for preschool or kindergarten! Students can assemble the firetruck and then trace the sentence “Firetrucks are red.”
You might also use this craft for a red color word craft!
Fire Safety Math and Literacy Centers
I LOVE using themed math and literacy centers because it is such an easy way to amp up student engagement! These fire safety centers are just right for preschool, Pre-K, or kindergarten students.
This number matching center is great for practicing number recognition and visual discrimination. You can add counters like these blue vase filler rocks from the Dollar Tree to add a counting component.
Building sight words is always so much fun! Students can build the sight words with the fire letters and then “drive” the firetruck over to them.
Roll and Fill is a great activity for practicing one-to-one and counting. Students will roll a dice and then add that many counters to their mat. Make this a game – the first student to fill up their mat wins!
For this fire safety literacy center, students will match upper and lowercase letters. You could also mix these letters into a fire safety sensory bin with crinkle paper for flames and blue pom poms for water!
This counting center comes with water drops to count out, but it’s so much more fun with vase filler as water drops!
For this sight word center, students will find sight word matches. You could also turn this into a matching game and hide half of the words around the room!
Counting on is such an important skill! For this fire safety center, students can use counters as they count on or write the numbers with a dry erase marker.
Who doesn’t love puzzles? For this fire safety activity, students will match letters to make the photograph.
Fire Safety Writing Center
Themed writing centers are another great way to engage your students in your theme! The activities don’t change, but the themes do, which keeps the center exciting.
Need social distanced centers this year? Read about how you can make your writing center independent here.
Labeling is one of our favorite writing center activities! Students can use the vocabulary cards to label the picture and then color it.
You can also let your students write thank you cards to firefighters at the writing center!
