The Fire Drill

We have been back in school for exactly 2 weeks and I am exhausted! I think we have ironed out most of the glitches our main one being getting 175 kids on 22 buses at two different loading zones at the end of the day! Thursday our office staff color coded each route and we made tags for each students to wear showing their color, name, and route number.  Yesterday was only our second day trying the color coding and I actually think it went pretty smooth.  Now all we need to do is get the teachers to REMEMBER to send the kids down to the cafeteria with their color tags!  Here is a worksheet we will be using in the next couple weeks about fire drills.  Let's hope that goes smoothly as well. 

Hope everyone is enjoying the new year!


  1. Hi Karen,

    My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you earn royalties of 70%. You can visit us at:

    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day

  2. No thanks Martin, I am completely happy making my 85% in my TPT store!

  3. I just found your blog about an hour ago and I'm loving all of the things you have on here. I taught preschool SPE/Inclusion for 15 years but this year I moved up to the HS self-contained class in my building. I have 11th-12th graders and I'm loving it. Some are my first preschoolers. I really like all of the life skills sheets I've seen you post so far and what I've seen on your TPT page. Awesome! I hope I can pick your brain if I ever get in a bind and need some ideas!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!! Lori

  4. Welcome Mrs. Lori! How cool that you get the same kids back after all those years! Feel free to pick my brain anytime. I will probably pick your too!
