I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

We start every year, in every grade learning and reiterating our anti-bully tools.     

Kindergarten Health
Kindergarten Health is defined by short units, generally one-two classes.  

Kindergarten Health will focus on staying healthy by washing hands, and wearing both sunscreen and helmets.  

In Kindergarten we also focus heavily on social behaviors - how to be a good friend, how to share, how to manage angry feelings, etc.  

We will also learn about Healthy Nutrition, and the importance of moving your body.



First Grade Health
In First Grade Health, we have slightly longer units of one - four classes, based on the topic.

We will investigate staying healthy by reiterating proper hand washing, being sun safe and wearing helmets when biking.  

Socially, First Graders will work on understanding proper expressing of and interpretation of feelings.  

As always, we will spend time learning about healthy eating and the importance of movement.  

Our First Graders will also learn about their Respiratory and Skeletal systems.  




   










Second Grade Health
In Second Grade Health, students spend more time diving deeper into fewer subjects.

An investigation of healthy living is undertaken throughout the year.  Our initial focus is on personal healthy via hand washing, killing and preventing germ spreading.  Attention will also be paid to sun and bike safety.  

Students will also delve into how food is digested and aspects of the digestive system.  

Lastly, our Second Graders will investigate healthy foods and their affect on our bodies.  



Third Grade Health
In Third Grade Health, students spend more time diving deeper into fewer subjects.

An analysis of healthy living is undertaken throughout the year.  Our initial focus is on personal healthy via hand washing, killing and preventing germ spreading.  Attention will also be paid to sun and bike safety.  

Students will also examine how germs are treated in the circulatory system.  

Naturally, our Third Graders will analyze healthy foods and their affect on our bodies.

Students will correlate that information with how a healthy or unhealthy Environment can affect our bodies.
