Earthquake Drills, Tornado Drills, and Intruder Drills (aka Lock Down Drills) can be scary for younger students. Using routine posters as visual supports and read aloud books shows students what to expect making the safety drills less scary and more manageable for your students.
At the beginning of the year, I will read the book before the drill and with individual or small groups of students throughout the year before drills. This has been designed for a preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten classroom.
This is included in my Character Education Bundle for Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten! Buy the bundle and save over 20%!

Routine Posters: There are FOUR drill routine posters for each to choose from. Two you can just print and post. The other you can make so students are able to take the parts of the routine on and off. ***I put a poster IN the book too! I make it the last page in the book.*** They are great to hang up in your classroom too!
Sending it Home with Students: Every year I have one or a few students who are scared to death or just freaked out by emergency drills. I make them their OWN book to take home. They can read it at home with their family too.
STOP! The FIRE DRILL book and routine posters are NOT Included in this set! Grab Fire Drill Book and Routine Posters.
