Even primary kiddos can benefit from discussions and activities related to Red Ribbon Week!
I stick to a "I am special" "I make healthy choices theme".
Like this adorable activity using gum balls to identify healthy choices.
You could even do a big poster with the gum ball machine and then have each child color and put their name on a gum ball.
We "chews" to be Happy and Healthy!
The packet continues with activities to share about individual characteristics that make each child special.
Word work and vocabulary development is always important.
There is a mini interactive book for kiddos to write about healthy choices.
Writing is also included as well as pictures for students to prepare posters.
The girl is shown here.
Finally if you would like your theme to be "Say Boo to drugs!" check out these cute activities.
A craft and bookmarks. I also prepared each worksheet shown here with the "boo" theme!
I also love this official Red Ribbon site. It has all sorts of suggestions for your classroom as well as your school. This year's theme is #YOUONLYLIVEONCE!
The freebie from The Not so Whimpy Teacher is filled with other ideas.
Make this a special week for you class!!
