Part of growing up is learning to keep
yourself safe and to make healthy choices.
Your lungs need good, clean air to stay healthy. Try not to breathe in smoke!
Being safe means being aware of things
that are dangerous. Medicines that are
not meant for you can be dangerous for you.
If you find any of these, tell an adult so they can be put away. It is never safe to eat or drink something if
you are not sure what it is.
You may know older kids who smoke who
might try to get you to try smoking. Tell them, “No, thank you” and walk away.
Hang out with friends who care about you.
Any kind of smoking is bad for your
health. Your body is smart. When someone
tries smoking for the first time they can cough a lot and sometimes feel pain
in their lungs. This is your lungs way of letting you know that these chemicals
are bad for your health. Remember smoke
free is the way to be!
Did you know that people who choose NOT
to smoke can do more activities because their lungs are chemical-free, and it
is easier for them to breathe? Stay
healthy and say “NO” to smoke.
Did you know that smoke affects
everyone who is around it? Ask anyone
who is smoking to go outside and be away from others.
Our lungs help us breathe. Breathing
well is important for playing with our friends and running. Did you know that smoke makes it hard for us
to breathe? Say NO to smoke!

Did you know that when you are kind, more people want to be
around you? One of the best ways to make
a new friend and keep your friends is by being kind. How will you show kindness
to others today?
Do you have a friend that is always there for you? Has one
of your family members done something special for you? Say thank you to the
people who mean the most to you. Remember saying “thank you” makes people feel
do you think it would feel to play by yourself everyday at recess? How would
you feel if you were the only one not invited to eat lunch together? A friend is helpful, cares about you, includes others to play with
them, tells the truth, and takes turns. I know we can all be good friends
Choose friends who make you feel good about yourself. If your friend
says mean things to you or make you feel bad, they are not being a good friend.
Tell your friend how you want to be treated. If your friend doesn’t want to
listen try to find new friends through clubs and activities like sports, drama,
music and art. Joining a group is a great way to meet new friends.
One of the BEST ways to solve a conflict is to
walk away calmly and go somewhere safe like a classroom with a teacher in it. Walking away takes you out of the conflict.
Remember to use your WITS.

Wednesdays from 1:00 - 1:30, reading, practicing reading/spelling, playing math
