Being Sick/Staying Well, Friday, December 2 @ 10:30

It's that time of the year!  Ask for a show of hands of who in the room has ever been sick -- I had one just out of recovery!

Hand sanitizer! Start by passing some around and talking about what hand sanitizer is and what germs are.  Tissues. A cookie. (To drop on the floor.)


Germs are Not for Sharing Board Book by Elizabeth Verdick. Demonstrate. Have the kids practice coughing into their arms.  We sang, "This is the Way We Wash Our Hands," right after.
Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson.  Shorten a bit. Bear has low grumpy voice, and chorus is, "And Bear FEELS SICK."
How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon? by Jane Yolen. Kids chorused along very well, "No!" They had faith in those dinosaurs. I don't know why.
Barnyard Song by Rhonda Gowler Greene.  We had to sing Old MacDonald first to settle them into the farmyard mode.
Llama Llama Home With Mama by Anna Dewdney
A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip Stead.

I would have liked to have had a short, cheerful book that really was about being well -- four books about being sick was plenty.  But we ended with "If You're Happy"
