Toilet Paper Goes in the Toilet! ¡El Papel Higiénico va en el Inodoro! (¡Ehl/pah-pel/ē-hē-ĕn-ē-kō/vah/ehn/el/Een-nōh-dōh-rrō) At the beginning of each school year (and when new students arrive) many students need to be taught how to flush the toilet and where to throw toilet paper. This can be both perplexing and awkward until you realize many students come from homes that have poor plumbing or septic tanks that cannot handle large amounts of toilet paper. These students may have been taught to throw their toilet paper in a wastebasket. If there is no wastebasket in sight, these students may throw their toilet paper on the floor. Some families may be trying to save on water consumption so students may not flush after every use. “If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.”
It is important to help all students learn this new skill to avoid any embarrassment it may cause. These five simple rules are bilingual with Spanish words written phonetically to help teachers who may not speak Spanish.
The colorful posters are sure to catch the attention of your students.
This activity includes:
• 6 fun and colorful 8 ½ x 11 “Restroom Rules” posters labeled bilingually with illustrations modeling the rules
• Vocabulary list of words commonly used when discussing restrooms in English and Spanish
• Spanish words written phonetically to help teachers who may not speak Spanish
Teach your students how to use the restroom and keep it clean in 5 specific steps.
