I'm looking for the standards to implement for 4th grade Learn Not to Burn.
Sometime repeat ideas are good.
We use the annual NFPA message and add to it, like do not play with matches, edith, stuff on smoke alarms, cooking, playing with matches,etc.
I have not ordered these books yet, but I think they might be good, plus if you contact her, she may have some ideas.
Thanks for getting in touch.
I have two children’s books for children app. 3-8 years old that are related to fire safety
What Should Daisy Do? (WSDD) is about close friends who do everything together, until one friend wants to play with something dangerous: matches and lighters. Daisy has to make some quick decisions and the children/audience get to help her make them.
Firefighters’ Busy Day (FFBD) is about a day in the life of a group of firefighters. It has been very popular for its illustrations. The editor chose to do photography with comic book style-illustrations over top. Kids seem to love it!
Both books have back matter which is full of safety information and credible resources such as the NFPA Correct Messaging Guide.
WSDD was my first book and didn’t sell as well as expected and the publisher sold the remaining copies to me back in December. You may still be able to buy copies on Amazon, but I’m not sure. I know it isn’t on their list anymore. I have copies for sell that I’m selling $10 each. If fire departments, fire marshal’s offices, Safe Kids groups, etc. are buying in bulk for schools, stations, etc. I can sell them as low as $5 each.
FFBD is on Amazon, Cokesbury, etc. and I also have copies for sell. They are typically $10 each unless a group wants multiples. If so, then I sell them for $8.
I love to personalize the books and sign them and I’d be glad to do that for any you wish to purchase.
I hope you have found this information helpful. I’ve very excited that you’ve reached out. If you have time, I’d love to see the article about the books.
Thanks so much!

Hi -- Learn Not To Burn does not extend to grade 4 at this time. However, we do offer a variety of helpful materials for students at this grade level available at www.sparkyschoolhouse.org The materials here can be viewed by grade level appropriateness through grade 5. You will find lesson plans, videos, mobile apps and more -- it is a great resource for anyone who is working with elementary-aged children around fire and life safety education! The Learn Not To Burn program can also be accessed here.
Here is a 4th Grade program prepared for McHenry Township Fire Protection District who posed the original question above in an effort to gauge other curriculum available. Hopefully others will find it helpful.
Thank you for sharing these resources Linda!
