Goal

To increase student awareness of Fire Saftey by providing students with more books about fire, firefighters, and fire safety, as well as opportunities for fire safety makerspace.  

 

What will be done with my students

With this grant, there will be a designated shelf in our school's media center with books pertaining to Fire Safety. There will be a sign allowing students to easily find these books in our media center. We will also be putting a special sticker on these Fire Safety books to help ensure that they will stay in this section of the library when students check them out and return them. Teachers will also be able to access these books for lessons in their classrooms. The picture attached to this grant shows a Financial Literacy shelf currently in our library. This Fire Safety area would be similar.
During class time with students, I will use these books for read alouds with the whole group, when approriate. This will also help to advertise this section of the library for students.
This grant will also provide some makerspace items for students to explore Fire Safety. This items will allow for the students to interact with the concept of fire safety.  

 

Benefits to my students

With the help of this grant, our students will have even more exposure to Fire Safety. These books will help expose our students to the dangers of fire and wildfire and help them to know what to do in a fire situation. There will also be books about firefighters' roles in our community and allow our students to see what they do. Some of the books have a science/STEM focus that will help the students to understand fire and what is done to combat them.
The makerspace items will allow the students the opportunity to have explorative play with the new information they will have about fire fighting.  

 

Describe the Students

Bardmoor Elementary is a Title I school with about 500 students PreK through 5th grade. All grade levels come to the library on a weekly basis. We have units in each grade level for students with austism. There about 40 English Language Learners, who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese as their first languages. Our students get free breakfast and lunch.  

 

Budget Narrative

Follett Books: This is an order of 32 hardcover, library-bound books about Fire Safety, Firefighters, and Emergency Response. This includes titles such as "At the Fire Station," "Engineering Solutions for Fighting Fires," "Get Out, Stay Out," and "Fire Safety." There are books about favorites characters, including "Curious George and the Firefighters" and "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Daniel and the Firefighters."
Amazon.com: This funding would be used for some books that were not available through Follett, like "Fire Drill," "the Gingerbreadman Loose on the Fire Truck," and "Fire! Fire!" With these funds, we would also be purchasing items for our makerspace for explorative play. This includes a model firehouse, fire rescue vehicle set, a rescue area playmat, and a collapsible storage organizer (modeled after a firetruck) to keep the items in. We would also be ordering a sign or the fire saftey bookshelf, a corkboard display board, and Avery stickers to create custom stickers for the books to help keep them shelved properly.
Oriental Trading: This order is for Fire Safety Bookmarks. We would order enough to be distributed to every student (500 pcs.)
