This year we recognize National Fire Prevention Week from Oct. 5-11. It is an opportunity to teach and remind kids of how to stay safe by preventing fires and knowing what to do in case of fire. With all safety information, understanding is of utmost importance, so it should be presented clearly, in their dominant language. However, you can also repeat information and reinforce learning with materials and activities in Spanish. Fire safety provides a context for using lots of vocabulary related to homes and the forest.
