Littles Learning Link Up: Focusing on Fire Safety Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (usually toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

October is Fire Prevention month, though the specific week is listed as the week of Oct 9th through the 15th this year. I decided to do a bit of digging and learned something new today. Did you know the date for Fire Prevention week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of 1871? I didn't.

Teaching children about fire safety and fire prevention is so important. In Pennsylvania, we are required to teach about fire safety every year in our homeschool. I decided to ask my fellow blogging moms to share their posts about fire safety, and once again, they didn't disappoint.
