Product Description

When I taught Fourth Grade (moving from Sixth) I couldn't believe how many times in a day the students were coming to me with their body issues! I wanted to be sympathetic, but it was getting to the point where we were wasting a good deal of time trying to make everyone feel better. My fellow teacher suggested that I make a chart so they can problem solve some of the issues themselves. It worked like a dream! I discovered that kids were having stomach aches from drinking large Starbucks in the morning before school, having WHOLE sleeves of Girl Scout cookies at lunch, and one girl was drinking 2-4 juice pouches every day. Some kids came up to me routinely just to tell me something "felt weird" and pointed to their finger or some other body part. They also wanted ice constantly and as a school we realized our poor office admin was handing out dozens of ice packs a day.

I went over this chart with the students and explained to them how to try to help themselves first, then in love I explained that I couldn't always help them to feel better. I also told them to come to me if they couldn't resolve their problem, if it got worse, or if it was an emergency. I gave the chart to everyone each week until eventually it whittled down to just a few kids who still needed it. I included an explanation about the chart in my newsletter so that parents would know I wasn't being heartless toward their child's physical needs.

Thank you for looking!
