Keeping kids of all ages healthy can be a challenge—especially when they tend to be masters at spreading germs! But that just makes instilling early handwashing skills all the more important. ! created this visual step-by-step guide to help you and your child get started (and have a little fun in the process)!
Help students learn to wash their hands with this original chart.
Our product includes:
*Handwashing - Bye Bye Germs! (classroom poster/chart to place near the sink)
*Individual Step Cards (help students learn the proper sequence in hand washing)
*“Tickets” for Handwashing (silently remind a student that it is a good time to wash his/her hands)
*Classroom Door Signs (reminds students to wash their hands upon entering the classroom)
*Direction Sheet & Tips
When teaching students skills, it is important to make it fun. Learning proper hygiene is important at an early age. This visual aid is designed to help teach children or individuals with special needs the important steps in washing their hands. Teaching proper hand washing technique is one of the best ways to stay healthy, especially during cold and flu season. With so many children with food allergies, it can be critical to have proper and frequent hand washing in your classroom to ensure all students are safe. This product is designed for pre-k, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th grades, and special education classrooms, including students with autism spectrum disorders.
It is important to explicitly teach children that there are many times during the day when they should wash their hands, e.g., after using the bathroom, before eating, after playing outside or with a pet. Help students to be aware that when they scrub their hands with soap they are removing germs, which are like tiny bugs. Teach your students the importance of scrubbing the back and front of their hands, between their fingers, their wrists, and under their finger nails.
Teaching students to sing a favorite song or verse during the, “Scrub, scrub, scrub” step on the chart will encourage children to scrub for long enough. Pick a song that is at least 20 seconds long when sung quickly.
I hope you and your students/children find this chart helpful.
