“Do you know where I work?” “Did your teacher tell you why I am visiting today?” “How many of you are three years old?” “Raise your hand if you are a very smart child”.
“Let’s see what you already know...” Show pictures and let children get used to your presence in the room. Give high praise for correct answers to questions about the pictures. Begin with easy, non-fire pictures.
Make-up a story about the child finding matches. Ask the class to pretend that the teacher is the child’s grandmother. Place the matches on the floor in front of the student. Carefully monitor them in case some student did not get the message and tries to pick up the matches.
Ask the student what they think they should do.
Encourage them to go over and report the matches to the teacher (grandma).
Praise the child for correctly reporting. Praise everyone sitting in the front row for not touching the matches.
