Health

The second grade curriculum health topic for this week is 'stranger danger'.

This topic has been covered in classroom curriculum and this was meant to supplement that. We talked briefly about what that term means and then I read some stranger safety situations. When the students heard a situation that they shouldn't do, I had them stomp their feet. When they heard a situation that they should do, I had them either stand up and jump, or some sort of activity. Here are a few of the situations I read to them...

You should always stick with a buddy...
You should get into a stranger's car...
You should open a door to a stranger...

etc...

The third grade health topic was 'looking cool'. We talked about what it means to use the word 'cool'. I read a story out of the WOW third grade text. We then discussed the main characters in the story and how they were alike and how they were different or unique. The main idea of the story was how we celebrate people's differences.

Enjoy the weekend and see next week in PE!
