Stop, Drop, Roll
In preparation for an upcoming fire drill, second graders and I discussed the exit route from the library, being quiet as we walked to our safe spot and waited for the all-clear signal, and why we practiced for a potential fire.
One student then volunteered, "I know what to do if your clothes catch on fire."
"What is that?" I asked her.
"Stop, drop, and roll," she told us.
"I learned that, too," I replied. "I learned it in a book called Clifford the Firehouse Dog."
She immediately pointed at me and exclaimed, "Same book! Me, too!"
I love connections like these with readers and books!
