K-Kachol capped off its study of firefighting and emergency services with a visit to our neighborhood fire station to learn about fire safety. Driven by their interest in all things "fire-department related," students turned their classroom into a fire station over the past few weeks. They enjoyed virtual tours of fire trucks and ambulances, and during their reading workshop, read fire station books! They also watched firefighter training videos and even tried to complete some of their physical workouts. Finally, they created firefighter uniforms from recyclable materials, making sure to wear their homemade gear during their visit.

As part of their neighborhood design thinking unit, pre-k students visited and interviewed a neighborhood fruit vendor, and decided to design a new seat cushion to help the vendor feel more comfortable during his workday. Students worked together to figure out how to make a comfortable cushion, they decorated it, made wrapping paper, and wrapped it! The best part was presenting it to Mr. Sarhat. He was thrilled and, we hope, definitely more comfortable!
