Just in time for Fire Safety Week, the National Fire Protection Association launches another amazing interactive app made just for kids called, The Case of the Missing Fire Alarms. Kids all around the country are learning about fire safety in school, and hopefully at home as well, but we all know repetition is a powerful learning tool. While we hope never to encounter a fire in our lifetime, safety is key. This app reinforces the importance of fire safety in a fun way. Not only is this an educational app, teaching our children about fire safety, specifically the importance of fire alarms, it also enforces common core standards with fun games that prompt kids to answer things like math equations to progress in the game.
What I love most about The Case of the Missing Fire Alarms app is how versatile and ageless this app is. With my kids spanning 1 to 10 years old, everyone plays this app in their own different way. My younger ones love the read along story, often fighting on who gets to push the next page button, eager to see Sparky the Fire Dog. Yes even the 1 year old is tech savvy. While my older two can read along all by themselves, they also love the game, collecting batteries and fire alarms for the win. They can’t wait to score up to the next level and the anticipation over what questions may be tossed at them next. With questions built around common core standards, I love that my kids talk each other through each question and while my 4 year old might be learning a ton from his older cousin, there’s still a few things that the 10 year old can be taught too.
