Fireman Unit ~ Preschool Corner {& 5K too!}

Preschool CornerNote: If you haven’t read the updated guidelines for Preschool Corner, please take a moment to do so BEFORE linking up today. Thanks! :)

Kaleb’s theme choice this week was to do Firemen. Needless to say, there were many ‘sirens’ echoing in our house throughout the day {and I think I may be ready to move onto a quieter theme next week}.

Some of the go-along books…


Here’s a look inside our workbox setup for this week. This week and last we started using Mystery of History 1 and Kaleb’s first ‘box’ includes the things he needs to participate along with us ~ coloring pages that go along with the weekly lessons as well as the Bible stories that we read in My First Hands-on Bible {so very much loving this Bible!!}. Although he might not be able to fully comprehend all that is going on with our history, we all try to sit together and tie-in things for him as much as we can.

Most printables for our week came from the Firemen Printables Pack. A few additional links are shared below.

These are just a few picture glimpses into our week…

Language & Letters

F is for Firefighter letter sheet

Our Do-A-Dot markers made their appearance several times this week. We used them as ‘water droplets’ to find each of the upper and lowercase Ff’s and mark them.

Having fun with mazes….

Fireman Word Story

Since the Do-A-Dot markers helped out so much during our last ‘find the word in the story’, we doubled up the colors again and had fun stamping out all of the words in the story that we could find.


This week we worked on a new concept ~ greater than and less than. The printable was from the Fireman Printable Pack and one that Kaleb asked if we could keep doing…which was a little hard since we glued them in place the first time. :)


Measuring ~ Kaleb loves measuring with his own ruler, so measuring the different fireman’s tools was much fun. {On a side note: I realized when printing this off in pdf format that it needs to be done without ‘shrink to fit’ or it does not measure correctly}.



One of the fun crafts we worked on this week was a handprint fireman team {which went along nicely with our Five Little Fireman poem}. I found this idea on TippyToe Crafts and Kaleb loved it! :) Kaleb also made a firetruck out of foam shapes {super simple}, but again…much fun.

All About Reading

This week we worked on the lowercase letter f. Kaleb worked on his ‘f’ for fish craft page from All About Reading Pre1 and then Ziggy helped us sound out some words. I slowly sounded out the words on the picture cards and Kaleb had to piece them together and identify what word was being sounded out.
