Today we began our Health and Safety week. If you remember, I advised you that a box full of Health and Safety information was lent to me to do with the kids. We started by reading many books that names began “I AM”- “Being Polite, Responsible, self respect, patience, respectful, Cooperative, Caring” We did a game involving Laminated Cards to go over what the kids should be doing and how they should be behaving, step 1-5, during our routine day. The Game was named “Daily routine teaching cards” they go over behaviors while “Arriving, Being Polite, Patient, Coughing and sneezing, Washing your hands, Preparing to eat, flushing the toilet, clean up after lunch etc”. We discussed many posters with many of the same subjects, “washing hands, brushing teeth, being polite, respectful, patient, keep your hands to yourself, say you are sorry, use a tissue, flush the toilet, use your words and SO many more.”. Then finally, what the kids had all been waiting for- We used the BIG TEETH and learned how to brush our teeth, we also read another book about it before we began and looked at the cards and posters again that related to teeth brushing. Each child got to brush the BIG teeth. They loved that. Even after all we had gone over and discussed the kids wanted more. I got out the game “Shop & Match”, each child has a shopping list and a plate. They blindly pick food out of the bag to try to fill their plate and shopping list with healthy food. The kids wanted to play this game over and over. It was a very busy day of learning and fun.
