This 75 page download is jam packed with great stuff! I've used a balanced literacy plan: There are two anchor texts--one literary and one informational. The informational text is the exeplar text Fire! Fire! by Gail Gibbons. The literary text is The Fire Station by Robert Munsch. The literacy plans for both books are explict and contain ideas for chunking complex text, higher order thinking questions and responses to the text through writing activities.
I've included four different literacy activites. Two are phonics based, and two are comprehension activites for small group or whole group work.
FIREHOUSE BLEND SORT- initial blend activities
COMPREHENSION HOT SHOTS- comprehension activity for Fire! Fire!
SHORT VOWEL SPELLERS-(1) sorting picture cards by median sound (2) alphabetical order
SUPER SEQUENCERS- sequencing activity for The Fire Station
There are also several math activities as well! There are three activities that the students could complete on their own, and one that you should use as a whole group.
WE'RE ON A ROLL: COUNTING ON AND BACK- input/output tables
HOT DOG MAKE A TEN- making a ten using manipulatives
MATH SURVEYS- whole group activity for data collection and analysis (rubric included)
TIME TO FIGHT FIRES- telling time to the hour
SCIENCE EXTENSION- 'Can you put out a fire without water?' with a take home science extension.
So excited for you all to get a chance to see it! :) If you previously purchased it...please go ahead and re-download! :)
ADDITIONAL WORKSHEETS- a variety of fire safety worksheets for your students to use.
