FEMA/NFPA Fire Safety Videos

I had the opportunity to review some Fire Safety Videos from the fabulous website and I could have sat there and watched them myself and rambled on and on and on about how great they are (because they are)...but I had a better idea.

The videos are made for children ages 4-9...and what do you know?  I have a 5 year old and an 8 year old right in my very home that must do as I say.  How convenient.

So I told asked them to sit down and take a little look at the short videos.  Guess what?  They liked them!  They sat through the whole video both times. My 5 year old even laughed a few times.

You can watch the videos here:
Little Roslie by SteveSongs:

What's That Sound? by Recess Monkey:

Both songs/videos are great! I would definitely use them in my classroom if I taught younger students but since the 5th and 6th graders I teach are a little older, I can only go by what my own children thought. And they gave the videos two thumbs up!

For all of you teachers or homeschoolers (I know a few...and more power to you! I don't know how you do it!!!), you can check out Sparky's Schoolhouse for lessons to go with the videos. I actually did one with my 5 year old and she really liked it. It was a lesson that went the the Little Rosalie video where she had to order the events (from 1 to 4) of what to do after the fire alarm sounds.  This lesson is great for children from Pre-K to 1st grade! You can find the lesson here.

I HIGHLY recommend these videos as a fun and entertaining way to teach a super important topic. ALL children must know about fire go ahead and show them these videos. Who knows, it could save their lives!
