Dear Teachers-

Are your end-of-school paper chains ready? Most of us are probably down to the teens for days left of school. This time of year is so hard to stay focused for the kids AND for me! We’ve all been prepping for testing, teaching for testing, hearing about testing, and now testing. I don’t know about you, but I breathe a sigh of relief when that last student clicks that last answer because I know we can have a little more fun in our classroom.

One thing I’ve noticed that has been a big educational focus this year is vocabulary. Have you noticed that? Maybe it’s the changing population of language learners in our schools or maybe text messaging and emails (LOL!) have really started to limit our students’ word use. Either way, we have been really focusing on vocabulary.

What does this have to do with hygiene? A lot! There are a lot of words that we’ll use with our students in regards to hygiene that they might not have a great understanding of. So this month I want to share with you a slideshow (attached PowerPoint) of germ-related words! This slideshow (See the attached document at the end of this page) is filled with pictures, definitions, examples and non-examples so when you’re teaching germs, your students will know exactly what you mean.

Good luck in your end of year testing and with your twenty-ish days left for traditional schools!

Goodbye Germs!

Mrs. T
