March is National Reading Month, which is devoted to creating opportunities for children to fall in love with reading and discover new ways to celebrate the joys of reading. Sparky the Fire Dog® can be a great resource as plans get underway.

The Sparky School House website offers exciting ways to kick off the month. The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms is a free app that teaches kids fire-safety skills with a compelling story, standards-aligned materials, and fun animations. Sparky’s Birthday Surprise free storybook app centers on a surprise party for Sparky. Sparky’s friend prepare for a big crowd at the firehouse while learning to stay safe in a fire.

Through a combination of nonfiction, fictional stories, scientific diagrams, and poetry, Rescue Dogs, Firefighting Heroes, and Science Facts, a free eBook, helps students build skills in reading comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary.

All of these materials make for compelling reading while reinforcing fire-safety themes.
