    Healthy Bodies




    Songs, Books, and Stories

    Special Activities




    At 11:00 we will take a fieldtrip to watch Kathy Gorman’s dance class.  We will also join them for some dancing.


    Brushing our teeth helps to keep us healthy.

    Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth
    “The Toothbrushing Song”

    We will paint using toothbrushes.




    At 9:15 we will take a fieldtrip to the Health and Science Center to get a tour of a doctor’s office from Nurse Practitioner Faith Wagner.


    We need to keep our body clean to stay healthy

    Washing Up
    “This is the Way to Wash Our Bodies

    We will pretend to give a baby a bath.


    Exercise is a way to move our bodies.

    Shake a Leg!
    “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”

    We will play “Follow the Leader” using action cards.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature a doctor’s office.  For art play we will trace and color our bodies and for sensory play we’ll use our sense of taste as we munch on a healthy fruit salad.  For construction play we will build with the wooden alphabet blocks.  For small motor play we will manipulate a body matching game on the Velcro board and for large motor play we’ll tumble and roll on mats.
