- ELA OBJECTIVES:
Students will know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills.
- FIRE-SAFETY OBJECTIVES:
Have two ways out; practice your escape plan; go to your outside meeting place; get outside and stay outside.
1. Review the fire-safety messages in the classroom poster (have two ways out, practice your escape plan, go to your outside meeting place). Have students search the poster for groups of items as you write their lists on the board: things to eat, things to play with, ways to get outside.
2. Have students list things in the poster that are important for fire safety (smoke alarm, home fire sprinkler, door, window, outside meeting place). Ask which of these things are ways to get outside (door, window). Invite volunteers to tell you what they should do when they hear the smoke alarm sound at home (get outside, go to the outside meeting place, stay outside).
3. Distribute copies of Worksheet 2, "Group It Right." Allow time for students to complete the activity. Answer Key: Answers can include: Things to eat: cereal, fruit, bread. Things to play with: puzzle, doll, fire truck. Ways to get outside: door, window.
