By Lisa Braxton

If you’ve thought about reading a fire safety story at school or at a community event, now is as fitting a time as any to consider doing so. D.E.A.R.–Drop Everything and Read–is a national, month-long celebration designed to remind folks of all ages to make reading a priority. D.E.A.R. programs have been held nationwide on April 12e in honor of Beverly Cleary, one of the most popular and honored authors of all time. She wrote about D.E.A.R. in the timeless children’s classic, Ramona Quimby, Age 8.

At Sparky School House, you can access Sparky’s Birthday Surprise, a fun story that includes games, activities, coloring pages and even a sing-a-long. Kids can learn fire safety skills in this app, which is aligned to Common Core State Standards in English, Language Arts, and Math. En outre, The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms teaches kids fire safety skills with a compelling story, standards-aligned materials and loads of fun animations. Both apps are free.

Rescue Dogs, Firefighting Heroes, and Science Facts is a free ebook ideal for reinforcing fire safety messages while building critical education skills and meets Common Core State Standards in English, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science.
