Staying Healthy

Our class has been having many absences this week. Lots of people have had the flu. These are some ways to stay healthy. Always wash your hands. Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Don't put your hands on other people's lockers. Stay clean. Take a shower. Keep your hands to yourself. Don't share your things. Blow your nose and then throw it away immediately! When you cough, cough into your elbow. If you're sick, don't come to school. If you are sick, take your medicine. Make sure an adult is around. Don't take your mom and dad's medicine. Use hand sanitizer. Drink lots of water. Don't share medicine. If you are allergic to something stay away.

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus didn't know how to read or write when he was young. He asked the queen for help to sail. He fought in a battle. Christopher Columbus sailed in 1492. He sailed for many days and nights. Lots of people thought he was crazy because they thought he would fall off the world. He wanted to reach the Indies. One of the boats was long. Lots of people wanted him to turn back. Mr. Columbus sailed to the island. He sailed 3 ships to find the new land. The three ships were called the Nina, Pinta, and the Santa Maria. He wanted to find gold and show the king and queen. Christopher Columbus's day is October 12th. We made Columbus hats on Columbus Day. We tried to make them look like his. We're working on a Christopher Columbus paper to color. We read books about Christopher Columbus.
