This topic is ongoing for the entire year, but it felt like myself and my students were a little more sick this year… “Go Away Germ Bug” should have been on my playlist for December!

Teaching children about germs and covering our mouths is an important lesson, but teaching the WHY is also important. I like adding TONS of visuals to my lessons. And I always use puppets, but this year I am going to start adding small video clips to explain the WHY. If you tell someone WHY they should cover their mouth when they sneeze, that is a great reminder, but if you show them, it can help them grasp the concept a little easier.

I also think there is no substitute for old fashioned handwashing with soap and water. Yes, our classrooms and schools have the squirt bottles of anti-bacterial soaps, but from personal experience, these dry out my hands and can cause rashes such as eczema so I am a big fan of plain old soap and water. As parents, we need to teach and remind our little ones everyday about washing hands properly because too many kids (and adults) still have not developed this important habit. Germs are real and they do spread so let’s all do our part to keep our little ones a little healthier!

With the holiday season wrapping up, I hope you start your New Year Happy & Healthy! Best regards, Monae 🙂
