Story:   Fire Fighters!  by: Angela Royston, pgs.158-171


Monday-  Up until the recent school closure, students were able to take field trips to the fire station for live tours.  Since we can't do that, a friend of mine at the fire department was kind enough to arrange the creation of a virtual tour video JUST FOR US (and now they can use it for others too.) Please watch the following video and as you read our story this week, think about what you learned in the video and what you read in our story and how they are alike and different. wink

Lewistown Fire Department Virtual Tour (23 minutes)

-Starring: Firefighter Butcher, recorded by Lieutenant Garber

-Story vocabulary: Using the words on pg. 156, 'play' them, 'discuss' them and then 'use' them in a sentence of your own. (If you are unsure of what any of the words mean, please use the book's glossary to look them up.  (Send me a video of you 'playing' your words if you want to.)

-Complete vocabulary pg. 56 in the green-striped reading workbook

Writing activity:  In your journal or on a separate piece of paper write a thank you note to the Lewistown Fire Department thanking them for making the video.  Include something you learned, what part you liked the best about the video and a special message or question for Firefighter Butcher.  (Draw a picture to go with if you want.)

*Remember to use capitals and periods in the right spots.
