Fire Safety FUN

This past week we had with our kiddos learning and reviewing important fire safety rules.  We are all “Smoke Detectives” now.  During center time our kids also did lots of fire themed centers that reviewed many of the skills we have been working on.  You can head over to our class blogs to see pictures and read about everything we did.

In math we have been learning how to connect addition and subtraction.  To go along with our fire theme and extend this skill we created this little fireman fact family activity.  clip_image003

We did this activity on the Promethean Board as a whole group.  We began by writing three numbers in the circles at the top of each problem.  Then we shaded in the number with our red crayon that was the largest so we would know how many were in the “whole group”.  Then we used the numbers to write two addition and two subtraction math problems.




  1. Thank you for the freebie! I LOVE your products! :)

  2. So cute! I like to color code fact families with the students, too. It works well when you find dominos with colored dots.
    Thanks for sharing!
