Hurry, Hurry, Drive the Firetruck Song



---------------------------------

Ten Brave Firefighters

Ten brave firefighters sleeping in a row.
(Fingers curled to make sleeping men)
Ding, dong, goes the bell
(Pull down on the bell cord)
And down the pole they go.
(With fists together make hands slide down the pole)
Off on the engine, oh, oh, oh!
(Pretend you are steering the fire engine very fast)
Using the big hose, so, so, so.
(Make a nozzle with fist to use hose)
When all the fire's out, home so slow.
Back to bed, all in a row.
(Curl all fingers again for sleeping men)

Five Brave Firefighters Fingerplay or Action Rhyme

I am a Fireman Big and Strong! Action Song



---------------------------------

I am a Firefighter Fingerplay

I am a Firefighter ("I'm a Little Teapot")
I am a firefighter, dressed in red.
With my fire hat on my head.
I can drive the firetruck, fight fire, too!
And help to make things safe for you!

 fire safety book for kids

While out for a walk with her mom, a little girl has the surprise of her life --- she meets a real, live, fire-breathing dragon! Now this dragon is nothing to be afraid of --- in fact, he's so friendly that she invites him home for tea. But their afternoon snack is suddenly interrupted when the dragon sneezes and sets the table ablaze. Luckily, the girl knows just what to do, and she teaches her new friend to be fire smart, too. 

With its funny, rhyming verse and spunky illustrations, Dragons for Tea shows kids that learning about fire safety doesn't have to be scary. The story ends with ?The Dragon's Fire Safety Rhyme? --- a fun and easy way to remember what to do in case of fire.
