A Safe and Healthy Year
by Michele Huddle and Elizabeth Pegg
Throughout the year, I try to remember many important safety and hygiene skills that I have learned.
In January, before I go out and play I bundle up with my coat, hat, and gloves to stay warm (quedarme en calor).
In February, I brush my hair and teeth two (dos) times a day to practice healthy habits (hábitos sanos).
In March, when I ride in the car, I always remember to wear my seatbelt (cinturón de segurid) to stay safe (Seguro).
In April, I take a bath (un baño) everyday and always remember to use lots of bubbles to stay clean (limpia)!
In May, while playing outside, I always remember to drink lots of water (agua) to stay hydrated (hidrato).
In June, I always remember to wear the right protective gear (artículos deportivos) while playing outside to stay safe (seguro).
In July, when I go on family vacations, I remember to wear my sunscreen (bloqueador solar) to protect my skin (proteger mi piel).
In August, I always look both ways before I cross the street (cruzar el calle) to get on the school bus.
In September, I always wear my helmet (llevo mi casco) while riding my bicycle to prevent a head injury.
In October, after Halloween, I always check my candy (inspecciono mis dulces) to make sure it is properly sealed.
In November, I prevent the spread of the flu by coughing in my elbow (tos en mi codo).
In December, I always remember to wash my hands (lavar mis manos) before eating to prevent myself from getting sick.
Now that I have shared my safety and hygiene skills with you, I hope that you will try them too!
