Under the Weather

Our theme today was “under the weather.” We read books about being sick. We also learned a rhyme about keeping our hands clean.

Rhyme: 5 Little Fingers

5 little fingers playing all day

Getting really dirty

Wash the germs away (rub hands together)

4 little fingers catching a sneeze

Needing some gel soap

Just a squeeze please (mimick squeezing a bottle)

3 little fingers staying pretty clean

Sneeze into your elbow (put your face into the crook of your elbow)

See what I mean!

2 little fingers tap the keyboard (pretend to tap a keyboard)

Be sure to wash your hands

Before you touch some more!

1 little finger going in a nose (pretend to put your finger in your nose)

Please grab a tissue

Before you blow your nose!

5 little fingers happy to say

We’re clean and we’re healthy

Hip Hip! HOORAY!!!

Craft: Medical Bags

For  our craft, we made medical bags. This way the children can help take care of their parents if mom/dad/grand-people/etc. get sick 😉 Check out the finished product!
