Storytime - Firefighters

In honor of Fire Prevention Week (October 6th to 12th) I decided to try a storytime all about firefighters!

The Plan:


This is the Firefighter by Laura Godwin
Fire Fighter Piggy Wiggy by Christyan and Diane Fox


"The Wheels on the Fire Truck"
(To the tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The wheels on the fire truck go round and round,
Round and round, round and round.
The wheels on the fire truck go round and round,
All through the town!

The hose on the truck goes squirt, squirt, squirt...
The siren on the truck goes woo wee ooooh...
The ladder on the truck goes up and down...
The horn on the truck goes beep, beep, beep...

"Five Brave Firefighters"

Five brave fire fighters waiting by the pole.
Ring, ring, ring goes the bell
And down one goes!

*I passed out bells on ribbon for this one and when I said "Ring, ring, ring" the toddlers all shook their bells. It was lots of fun!*

I also briefly spoke with the toddlers about fire safety. I mentioned stop, drop, and roll. There a good song one of our local fire fighters does with the kids when she is able to come in and do a fire safety storytime for us:

(To the tune: Frere Jacques)

When you're burning, when you're burning (wiggle fingers)
Stop, drop, and roll. Stop, drop, and roll. (Hold hands out for stop, then make drop motion, then roll hands)
Over and over. Over and over. (Roll hands)
Until it's out. Until it's out. (Clap on "out")

You can also pass out a coloring page that reminds parents to change out their smoke detector battery when the time change this fall!
