Classroom Safety Drills

Hey guys and dolls, how’s it going? Today I would like to discuss classroom safety drills and procedures. It’s something that we all have to teach and practice with our kiddos.  As I was thinking of what I want to cover the first few days of school, I realized that I never really teach safety drills the same way. I just kind of go over it, we practice it, and BOOM!! Done!

I want to be more intentional on teaching the drills, because it really is a big deal. Five years ago my school was hit by a tornado, and I’m so glad to say it was early in the morning before anyone had arrived on campus. So, Classroom Safety Drills was born! This allows me to be able to have easy to implement lessons to explicitly teach all of the drills.

Fire safety drills and procedures are important skills to practice during the first few weeks of school. This pack contains easy to implement activities and read alouds to make it so much easier!

This pack covers fire drills, tornado drills, lockdown drills and earthquake drills. Each drill has a read aloud that can be printed and bound, and it is also in PowerPoint form, so that it can be projected on an interactive whiteboard. 

Classroom safety drills and procedures are important skills to practice during the first few weeks of school. Fire drills, tornado drills, lockdown drills, and earthquake drills and their alarms can be extremely loud & scary for little ones. This pack contains easy to implement activities and read alouds to make it so much easier!

After the read aloud, there are a few options. I wanted to include items that could be used in a K-2 classroom. So, for our wee little ones, there is a color sheet, and in the margins of the sheet it says, “Ask me what I learned!”. 

Tornado safety drills and procedures are important skills to practice during the first few weeks of school. This pack contains easy to implement activities and read alouds to make it so much easier!

It’s a great way for students to continue the conversation at home. I know that each school across the country uses different terms for a lockdown drill. This section contains options for lockdown, safety drill, or shelter in place drill. If your school uses something else, please let me know, and I will add it!

Lockdown safety drills and procedures are important skills to practice during the first few weeks of school. This pack contains easy to implement activities and read alouds to make it so much easier!

Each drill also includes a reader, and a cut and paste sheet to practice the procedures for each drill. There are also awards included for when your students learn the drill procedures. Throughout the year, as drills are practiced every month, there are mini-awards, or brag tags if you will, for students are caught following directions and being good during the drill. 

Earthquake safety drills and procedures are important skills to practice during the first few weeks of school. This pack contains easy to implement activities and read alouds to make it so much easier!

As you begin your discussion on safety drills, there are also anchor chart headers that will allow you to record the discussion in your class. They are great to list do’s and don’ts during drills.

I hope that this helps your kiddos to learn all about safety drills, and why they are necessary!
