Curriculum Connections
●  Health: Give each child a simple outline of a person. Discuss the many ways we can be healthy. Have the children color in their persons and check off where they are healthy and any places where they might not be healthy (i.e., broken arms, scratches, etc.). Be mindful that sickness and disease might be present in their families and that disabilities do not necessarily make someone unhealthy. (NHES.1.2.2)
●  SS: Invite the children to think of something they are looking forward to (i.e., a special reader, a class party, a field trip). Help them brainstorm what needs to happen before this event takes place. As a class, make a chart to document what must happen first.
