Fire Safety and More of Literacy Centers

Wow!  These past few weeks have been so very busy!
October is Fire Safety month.  
Last week we welcomed the P.R.P. Fire Department to our school.  They discussed the role of a firefighter and fire safety.

The students also had the opportunity to explore the fire engine!


Last week in math we discussed ordinal numbers.  We began our lesson by reading the book, 10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle.

Then, we acted the story out using ordinal numbers - first, second, third...

It is a fun book - make sure you check it out the next time you visit the library!

This week the students began independently visiting our classroom literacy centers.  
They are doing an INCREDIBLE job!

Here are pictures from each of our centers.
