Here is a Firefighter

Happy Flannel Friday!  I’m back after a not-so-brief hiatus with a firefighter flannel that is perfect for a Fire Safety storytime in October.

At various parts in the rhyme I would pause and hold up the item, asking the kiddos for the word.  The grey beard (aka mask) was great because we had a brief discussion about how it’s important to not be scared of them, even though they are big and cover a firefighter’s mouth so you can’t really see the person.  Then I would put the article of clothing on the wrong spot (e.g. put the pants on top of the head).  Once we had made it all the way through and the kids showed me where each item properly goes, we repeated the rhyme again.  Without further ado…

Here is a firefighter!

Here are his pants.

Here is his coat,

and here is his hat.

Here are his gloves,

Here are his boots.

Here is his mask,

And his fire hose too!
