Activities: 


Five Fire Trucks

Make a felt board rhyme by using NCLS Accucuts "Fire Truck" and "House Colonial". Cut flames from orange felt. Encourage the children to shout, “Hurry! Hurry! The flames are growing higher!” each time you reach that part of the rhyme. Begin the activity with all five fire trucks and the building on the flannelboard. Take the fire trucks off one at a time as the rhyme  progresses.

 

Five fire trucks are rushing to the fire.

Hurry! Hurry!

The flames are growing higher!

 

One truck had to stop—

Oh, no, he’s out of gas!

Four fire trucks went roaring right on past.

 

Four fire trucks are rushing to the fire.

Hurry! Hurry!

The flames are growing higher!

 

One truck had to stop—

Oh, no, he has a flat!

Three fire trucks roared by—just like that!

 

Three fire trucks are rushing to the fire.

Hurry! Hurry!

The flames are growing higher!

 

One truck had to stop—

Oh, no, he’s lost his way!

Two fire trucks are left to save the day.

 

Two fire trucks are rushing to the fire.

Hurry! Hurry!

The flames are growing higher!

 

One truck had to stop—

Oh, no, he’s lost a tire!

One fire truck is left to fight the fire.

 

One fire truck is rushing to the fire.

Hurry! Hurry!

The flames are growing higher!

 

One fire truck is the hero.

Of that there is no doubt.

He got there just in time

And put the fire out! (Remove the flames from the house)

 

Did You Ever See a Super Hero

(Tune: The More We Get Together)

Did you ever see a super hero, a super hero, a super hero,

Did you ever see a super hero

Jump up and down?

Jump this way and that way

Jump this way and that way

Did you ever see a super hero

Jump up and down?

 

...twirl all around

...hop on one foot

...etc, etc!

 

Superman

Put your hands way up high,

Like Superman flying across the sky.

Fly to the left,

Now fly to the right.

Now show me your Superman muscles with all your might!

Now Superman's putting his suit away,

So he can go flying another day.

 

If You Want to be a Hero

(To the tune of: If You're Happy and You Know It)

If you want to be a hero fly around...

If you want to be a hero spin your cape...

If you want to be a hero jump up high...

 

What Do Heroes Do?

What do heroes do?

They stretch and touch their toes!

 

What do heroes do?

They spin around in their cape.

 

What do heroes do?

They practice touching the sky!

 

What do heroes do?

They fly around at night.

 

What do heroes do?

They wiggle their feet in the clouds!

 

What do heroes do?

They practice their pose!

 

 

 

Crafts: 


Firefighter’s Hat

Cut the corners on a piece of red construction paper to make a large oval. Cut a half circle near the top, leaving the side toward the top intact. Fold the circle up towards you to create the front of the hat. This will leave a space for your head and allow you to wear your hat. Now decorate your hat and add the Fire Department symbol to the front.

Super Hero Cape

Cut the closed end off of a black garbage bag. Slit the bag up the side. Punch holes on the two top corners and use yarn to tie it together. Let kids decorate their cape with accucut shapes, stickers, or whatever you have on hand that would make a good superhero cape.
