Preschoolers learned about fire safety as part of Fire Prevention Week. The Oxford Junction Fire Department came to visit. They showed us their tanker truck, brush buggy, rescue truck and we even got to ride around town.

Fireman Steve showed us what he looked like in his fire suit. He told us never to run from a fireman if there is a fire. He is there to help.

Practice your fire safety plan at home. Stop, Drop and Roll if your clothes are on fire.

Snacks were even theme appropriate and a lot of fun!

Nikki Rushford, Wyoming Librarian came to visit the preschool classroom to share some stories with us. She was able to bring along some friends with her, Elephant and Piggie characters from the Mo Willems book series. The preschoolers also made Elephant and Piggie puppets. Thank you Nikki, Piggie and Elephant for taking time out of your day to share your love of books with the preschoolers.

In Mrs. Clark's preschool we have been talking about volcanos. Today, we made them erupt. The hot molten magma came erupting from within creating lava when it cooled on the earth.


The preschool class has been learning about construction. We have looked at blueprints and how they help make plans for construction of a building. We have been using many materials (boxes, wooden blocks, plastic spools, legos, big plastic blocks and milk jugs) in our classroom to construct structures.

As part of our reading unit, My Family, My Community, the preschoolers visited local businesses found in the Oxford Junction Community. Our first stop was Citizen's State Bank where the children got to see the vault where everyone's important papers are kept. We then walked to TLZ to discover where their parents could buy gas and candy at the same time. The last stop on our tour down town was Coon's Corner where we found many yummy foods for our parents to purchase.

In honor of fire prevention week the Midland Preschool children were visited by the Oxford Junction Fire Department. Fireman Steve dressed in full gear for the children to see what he looks like when dressed for fire fighting. We were, also, shown the tanker and rescue trucks. In our classrooms the children practiced "Stop, Drop and Roll."

Mrs. Clark says, "Following our stories, The Little Red Hen and Peanut Butter and Jelly, we decided to make some monster toast as a closing activity. In the first story Little Red Hen, the Little Red Hen asks her friends for help in making bread, but no one would help her so she did it herself. The second story is a silly story about how elephants squash up peanuts to make peanut butter and grapes to make grape jelly. So, the children used milk and food coloring to paint a design or face on a piece of bread. They then toasted it and enjoyed smothering it with peanut butter and jelly. Needless to say, they did it all by their selves and they ate one whole loaf of bread. I guess they liked the activity."
