Primary Theme: Fire safety
I would have the children to seat in the circle area to listen while I read “Stop Drop and Roll” (A Book about Fire Safety) by Margery Cuyler, Arthur Howard (Illustrator). I would show them the pictures as I read to them, and I would ask them questions to see if they comprehended anything from the book. And I would allow their free comments of their perception as I read the book. Then for music and movement, we would sing, “Stop, drop and roll!” As we sing the song, I would have the children to act out the song for movement, by having them to pretend that they are on fire, and do as the song says, “Stop, Drop and Roll” as they would be putting their selves out, if they were on fire. For the art, I would let them make a Firefighter's Hat. The materials needed for the art would be: Pattern for Front of Hat; Pattern for Back of Hat; Tacky Glue; 1 Sheet Red Craft Foam; Scrap of White Craft Foam; Scrap of Black Craft Foam. Instructions: Print patterns. Piece front and back together at the dotted line. Staple inside your cutting lines onto red foam. Cut out. Cut the shield out of white. Cut out black numbers. Glue together as shown in photo above. You have the finished product a Firefighter's Hat.
