Fire Prevention Week

After recess on Friday, the first graders had another special treat. We had a visit from Chief Andrews from the Warren Fire Department. The fire fighters showed us some equipment, gear, and the fire truck. Students asked and answered questions. They looked through a thermal imaging camera and a few even tried on some gear.

Not too long after we were back inside the building there was a fire drill. Everyone was outside and safe in no time at all. We got to meet another community helper and learn more about what they do. In math we practiced how to solve addition problems using drawings and learned how to write number sentences (equations) to match in a fire fighter math booklet. Throughout the week we heard many fiction and nonfiction books about fire fighters and fire safety. We ended our day with the book Fire, Fire by Gail Gibbons. All students received a fire safety coloring book and a dress the fire fighter cling on board compliments of my husband Mark and Liberty Mutual.

Walking Field Trip to the Library

We had wonderful weather for our walking field trip to the Warren Free Public Library last Friday. I’d like to give a special thanks to Regina Gamage, Debra Ripley, Michelle Lewis, Debbie Gould, and Vicki Swindler for being chaperones for our class. We all enjoyed listening to both books read by Sara Tony-Davis, Penelope Popper, Book Doctor and The Book With No Pictures. After looking around for 15 minutes, we enjoyed one more book, Field Trip Day, read by Michelle Lewis.

All of the children were also given a book, The Friendship Fairy, compliments of the Warren Free Public Library. Then, we headed back to school on foot to make sure we arrived in time for lunch. I’d also like to thank  the Knox County Sheriff’s Department for helping our kids get across the intersection safely both times. We got to see two community helpers, librarians and police officers, on this special day. Enjoy the pictures below.
