Pike Road Schools
Mrs. Cobb's Kindergarten Community
October 9, 2015
This week we were honored to meet some of our wonderful community helpers. The members of the Pike Road fire department stopped by the school for a visit on Wednesday morning. The children prepared for their visit by thinking of questions for the firemen.
Bradley, "I wonder what the siren sounds like. Can I drive the truck?"
Lilly Grace, "How does the hose work?"
Isabella, "How high does the ladder go?"
Braylon D., "I've been on a fire truck before, but I don't think I can drive cars yet."
Ava, "Why do fire fighters use hoses?"
Aubrey, "Why do they use axes?"
Esther, "What is a fire truck and a fireman?"
Brayon B., "How do they work everything on the fire truck?"
Amy Kate, "My daddy works at the fire station, but he has to learn how to do the fire fighting."
Braylon D., "Fire trucks have a lot of wheels. I don't know how many."
We learned that the hose connects to the fire hydrant to get water. The fireman told us that they have many different sizes of hoses. The ladder on their truck reaches 75 feet unto the air. They use an axe to cut holes to gain entry into homes to save people. Our fire department does not have a fire dog, but they would like one. The firetruck has six huge wheels.

I believe that the classroom should be a learning home for your children. The children loved seeing their portraits and their photographs displayed on the wall. These treasure will be yours to keep at the end of the year!
The Scholastic book fair begins Tuesday and ends on Friday. Our class will visit the book fair at 8:30 Tuesday to view the items.
