It is hard to explain to kids why rolling on the ground helps put out the fire if they ever catch on fire. So, today we did this little science experiment. I lit a candle and talked about how it is getting air so the flame stays big. Then I placed a plate over the top of the candle and the flame went out - because it did not have any air. When we roll around the fire can not get any air . That is also why we NEVER run when our clothes are on fire.
These boys love to read but one of my "tricks" to getting little boys to pick up a book is by placing them in the block center where they spend a lot of time. There are books about trucks, motor cycles, with steering wheels and race cars .
I love to see how the kids bond and love each other.
Our friend Kimber was back today . He had to be out for a while ! Kimber we are so happy to have you back in school.
Tonight is our family field trip to the fire station. We will meet at the Cheri Whitlock Station at 6:30 pm. We should be finished my 7:00.
