We read lots of books about firemen. This one was really cute and it had a CD that read it! I got it from Scholastic. There is also a short clip on United Streaming about firefighters.
We made a tree map together about what we learned about firefighters.
We used those facts to create a paragraph about firemen! There are 4 sentences. We voted on which facts to include then I wrote the sentences. The kids copied me on their papers. I am excited about how well they turned out. It is my hope that by the end of the year, this will be an independent activity!
