I always find myself repeating the same things in my classroom this time of year.
Wipe your nose! Please go get a tissue! Cover your mouth when you cough!
It is no wonder I spent last week battling my annual early winter cold. As it turns out, most teachers are in the same boat as I am this time of year. Yesterday, as I was looking over my Union Newsletter, I came across a very interesting article: New Website Teaches Children about Proper Hand-Washing.
Scrub Club is a series of interactive games children play to battle the evil “Influenza Enzo.” There are six “Soaper Heroes”, each of whom represents one of the six steps to washing hands. Teachers can also download educational materials about proper hand washing to use in their classrooms.
Happy Hand Washing (and nose blowing)!
