This week’s theme is being done last minute because I posted over at Adventures in Literacy Land today AND I’m gearing up for a big blog hop starting tomorrow night. BUT…it is important to me to stick to the schedule. So here we go. I think in the end, you’ll find a few valuable tools to use with teaching nutrition, health, exercise, germs or dental health, and if you have resources to share, by all means, please link up with me.
I have a few favorites on my planning page, so I’ll take a minute to highlight them. You can certainly save the plan page and access the ideas via my page (for some) or find them on my Pinterest board later.
First up are the freebies I liked from Teachers Pay Teachers. I Can Fill Up My Plate! is a freebie from Loreen Leedy using the book, Jack and the Hungry Giant. It teaches portion control and the importance of eating from all food groups.
This morning, we just had an inservice about the importance of using a sensory diet to help children improve their focus in school. This unit encourages that, and you might find my Brain Breaks Pinterest board helpful too. [Here] is the link to it.
In Give Us a Smile, Cinderella! poor Cinderella is never allowed a bath – so it’s no surprise that she’s so smelly! When the fairy godmother conjures up a bubble bath, Cinderella is transformed, just in time for the ball.
Goldilocks ran through the forest. Before long, she was lost and tired and her tummy was rumbling. She wished she’d eaten her breakfast.
Then she smelled something yummy! She followed her nose to a little cottage. No one was home, so she went inside. Will she eat her greens?
