Safety First!

Fire is a dangerous and sometimes scary thing to deal with, even for adults! Today Ms. Liliana’s Redondo Beach kindergarten class learned about the importance of fire safety and covered precautions that a student should take at home and how to act at school during a fire. To introduce the students to the topic of fire safety, Ms. Liliana showed her students a video describing various ways on how to prevent a fire and what to do in case of a fire. The students took their places on the carpet and listened intently to the informative video.

The video explained to students how important it is to develop a plan and have emergency evacuation rations just in case you need supplies after a fire. Many students were upset when they found out that they had to leave their toys behind in a fire, but Ms. Liliana explained why and the students were soon understanding of the reasons.

After the introduction video finished Ms. Liliana also showed a video of firefighters putting out a fire and then finished with a sign along. The song was styled after wheels on the bus but replaced it with fire fighting related objects. Here is a short clip of the students signing along with the video.

After they finished the multiple videos and sing along the students returned to their seats for a worksheet. The worksheet was a fun interactive way to teach the students to avoid or use objects that possibly could start a fire in their home. Ms. Liliana went over the worksheet making sure the students understood why some objects you shouldn’t touch and others you can.
