Healthy Habits- This week we learned how stay healthy. We learned that we need to wash our hands thoroughly and keep our whole bodies clean by taking shower, baths, washing our hair, and brushing our teeth. We now know how long to wash our hands by singing the ABC’s which is a good idea but we decided it would be too difficult to sing while brushing out teeth. Another way to keep healthy is to cover our sneezes and coughs with the inside of our elbow to trap germs from flying all over the place. Another healthy habit is to get enough sleep to rest our bodies and our minds. Exercise such as running, biking, climbing, and even walking leads to a healthy body and mind. We discovered if we eat healthy food like fruits, vegetables, protein, and limited sweets that is good for our bodies. More on that next week.
A Message From Mr. John (Whatcha saying Willis):
Pigs Don’t Sweat- If someone tells you they’re “sweating like a pig” you might want to point out to them (if you’re that sort of person) that if they were being biologically accurate, that would mean they were not sweating at all. Swine are born without sweat glands, so when they need to cool off, their only option tends to be to find a cool puddle of mud in which they can roll around.

Academic Enrichment aka Kindergarten:
Hemispheres- The kindergarten students and I went over hemispheres, The Equator, and The Prime Meridian. Actually, the hemispheres are made by The Equator and the Prime Meridian. The North and South Hemisphere are created by The Equator and the East and West Hemisphere are created by the Prime Meridian. We delved further and identified the Northwestern, Northeastern, Southwestern, and Southeastern Hemispheres. that was not as daunting as one would expect.
