In celebration of fire safety, I'm knocking $1 off this packet for a limited time.
A big part of our fire safety studies is learning about 911.
Since my kiddos are just learning to recognize numbers, they often confuse 6s & 9s.
It makes no sense for them to recite “Call 911 in an emergency” if they haven’t practiced finding & pressing those numbers; so we practice on real, non-working cell phones, that parents have donated to our class.
Just as important as learning how to dial that number, is knowing when it’s appropriate to do so.
Keeping these things in mind, I designed this 911 packet, with quick, easy & super-fun activities that will ensure your students know how, as well as when, to dial this life saving number.
The packet includes:
* An emergent reader: “Who Ya Gonna Call?” with 24 Dolch sight words.
I titled the booklet that because of the catchy Ghostbusters tune, and have the music playing softly in the background, when my kiddos work on this activity.
When the refrain “Who ya gonna call?” is sung, my students yell out 911.
* A “When Should I Call 911?” cell phone craftivity, which we do after reading the emergent reader.
This not only reinforces the lesson, but tests comprehension.
* 2 song posters; 9-1-1 to the tune of “Brother John”, as well as “Call 9-1-1” to the tune of “If You’re Happy & You Know It”.
* A matching “flip phone craftivity” that displays the song inside.
* A “Rip & Tear” craftivity that helps strengthen finger muscles.
* A “100s chart, mystery number worksheet”, along with quite a few worksheets to practice the numbers 911.
* Five, colorful 911 number puzzles that practice sequencing numbers from 1-10, counting backwards from 10-1, plus skip counting by 2s & 10s.
I’ve included a black & white pattern as well, so that students can make their own puzzle.
* 911 “slap bracelets”, a bookmark and certificate of praise.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy these activities, as they learn about 911.
