Choice Board For Fire Prevention Week, October 8-14, 2023....You Will Find Resources and Template To Use Here, Friends


October is Fire Prevention Month and October 8-14, 2023 is Fire Prevention Week, so I have brought together resources for our students on this choice board.  I wanted to share this with all of you so you could make a copy and use it as a template to add resources that you have access to in your library.  

You will find our choice board here where you can make a copy. Once you have a copy, you can add links to your PebbeGo and Capstone Interactive eBooks, and other resources you have too. 

I included the PebbleGo article about Fire Safety and several eBooks from our Capstone Connect.  
The Cantata Learning Fire Safety series which are read and sing along books all about fire safety topics such as Dial 911!, Get Out, Stay Out and more are the perfect addition to a fire safety choice board. 

These can be found to share here on Cantata Learning's YouTube and embedded into your choice board as a video too.
And I also included the NFPA Kids site which allows all kids to join Sparky's Fire Safety Club to visit the interactive site filled with fire safety activities. You will find it here.

I hope you and your students are able to use these activities and add your own to the Fire Prevention Month.  You will find our choice board here, friends.
