Sound Off Storybooks

Grades: Elementary (2-3)

Subject Area: Health & Safety, Math, Language Arts

Made Possible By: Michigan Public Health Institute with a grant from USDHS/FEMA

Displayed below are several versions of the Sound Off Storybook (Join the Home Fire Safety Patrol) in English and Spanish.

  • The read-aloud and mini-storybook versions may be printed out for students.
  • The narrated “flipbook” versions may be presented in class on a digital whiteboard or computer, or you can provide students with the URLs so they can hear the story read aloud at home.
  • The PowerPoint version (available only in English) is designed for classroom presentation and includes a short interactive quiz at the end.

Choose the version best suited to your students and the educational setting. (NOTE: Both the flipbook and the PowerPoint versions of the storybook include smoke alarm sounds that may not be appropriate for students sensitive to loud noises.)
