|Nutrition with Our School Nurse|
Our CH1 children know a lot about keeping healthy! Here is some of what they said.... "Eat lots of fruits and veggies." "Eat lots of fruits and veggies when you have a cold." "Drink water." "Go to the doctor." "Exercise." The children did an activity with Kathleen in which they put food into different categories; fruits, veggies, protein, grains, and dairy. We all had a lot of fun! Please go to our private CH1 page for photos.
|Special Sound of the Week|
This week our special sound of the week is /ow/ as in cow. The objects on our special sound of the week table are; clown, cow, and flower. The children listened to a book called Flowers to see how often they noticed the sound /ow/.
Our school nurse, Kathleen, visited our classroom to teach the children about hand washing. Kathleen and the children discussed that they should wash their hands after using the bathroom and before eating, for example. She put dirt on her hands, to represent germs, and then just rinsed her hands with water. The children noticed that her hands did not get very clean. Then she carefully used soap and washed her hands while the children counted slowly to twenty. Kathleen carefully dried her hands and each of her fingers. The children were interested to learn that their hands will be much cleaner after using soap and water, while washing for twenty seconds, and carefully drying.
|Roman's Dad Visited CH1|
Roman’s dad, Mike, visited our classroom today to share with us about Chinese Calligraphy. He showed special writing brushes and demonstrated how to hold them. He even wrote some words for us to see. When children made the connection between the writing Roman’s dad was showing us and the symbol for ‘Spring’ we cut out during Lunar New Year, Mike wrote ‘Spring’ for us in Chinese Calligraphy. Roman shared with us, a children’s book written in Chinese, that the children enjoyed looking at this week.
