Going to the school nurse can be scary for some students. This fun, rhyming story is a great way to introduce the clinic and the school nurse to students in a non-threatening way. It is written in simple, easy to understand language so it is appropriate for students from kindergarten up.
At the beginning of the story, students meet the school nurse. Then they learn about what the school nurse can do to help them feel better—take their temperature, give them ice, call their parents, or give them medicine from home.
In addition to the story, several activity pages are included. The first one shows pictures of students who are sick or hurt. This page could be helpful for students who are non-verbal or who have difficulty communicating what is wrong. The teacher or nurse could have students point to the picture that shows how they feel.
The additional activity pages include the following:
•Who should go to the school nurse? Identify which students should see the school nurse.
•The Clinic-- Cut and paste pictures of items that you see in a clinic.
•What do you need? Trace the lines to the correct treatment.
•What can the nurse do? Read or color pictures showing what the nurse can do.
•Our school nurse is _____. Fill in the name of your school nurse. (4 versions are provided to best match your school nurse)
