Did you hear that? Yep. It was a big, fat sneeze. I've got it, and so does half of my team. Our students aren't coming to school because they have it too. What is it?

That darn cold and flu!

Teaching your kiddos about the importance of sanitizing should be on EVERY teacher's to-do list.  Why not teach them and be entered in to win some $$$$$ {benjamins} for your classroom.  

Here's how to works:

The CDC estimates that each year more than 164 million school days are lost due to illness, and that number could be greatly reduced with proper hand washing. As a result, NSF International—a nonprofit public health and safety organization—is challenging school teachers and classroom’s nationwide to stop the spread of germs by lathering-up and showing their cleanest hands through the Scrub Club Clean Hands Game.

Now through April 1, 2011, school teachers, grades K-5, can enter their classroom into a drawing for a chance to win one of five $100.00 gift cards for classroom. Anyone can participate by completing these two simple steps:

  1. Snap a picture of your classroom’s clean hands (view sample)
  2. Submit your photo and contact information online
Once you’ve done that you’ll receive a Scrub Club® Clean Hands Game Certificate and be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of five $100.00 gift cards for classroom supplies.  For complete rules and prize details, click here.
Feel free to also visit the Scrub Club website, which offers free lessons to school children on the importance of hand washing.

 You've got to visit their website. They have free games, free teacher lesson plans, and {this} HILARIOUS webisode that can teach your students about germs! I'm currently watching it without my students even at school yet!

A-A-A-A CHOOOOOO! {Bless me}!

Any more tips to keep the cold and flu out of my classroom?
