From Health

In Health class we are finishing up our safety unit: Safety at school, home, and in the community.  We will have our first quarter personal safety lesson with the goal of teaching students safe and unsafe touch, refusal skills and how to keep themselves safe.  Curriculum is grade level appropriate and is provided by ASD for all Health Teachers to present.  
 
As October comes to a close, classes will begin their study of the different body systems.  
  • K-The 5 Senses
  • 1st- Head to Toes (major organs)
  • 2nd- How You Think (Brain)
  • 3rd- The Better to SEE You With (eyes)
  • 4th- Let's Talk Teeth (Dental Health)
  • 5th- The Nervous System
  • 6th- Cells
 
This year, my goal is to include more "hands on" activities for students and incorporate both literature and science as well.  Each daily lesson includes a mini SEL (Social & Emotional Learning) lesson that supports the learning that is happening in your child's classroom.  Our goal is to help students to be balanced individuals with skills to deal with life, from relating to others to dealing with everyday challenges.  We usually "play" a game that is age appropriate focusing on the theme so students can have an opportunity to practice these skills.
