The Best Me That I Can Be!
¡El Mejor Mí Que Puedo Ser!

by Liz Brown and Leigh Visconti

Health and Nutrition
I pack my lunch (almuerzo) and make sure that I have at least one fruit or vegetable (fruta o verdura) to eat.
After eating all my dinner (cena), I can have one cookie, brownie or scoop of ice cream. Eating too many sweets (dulces) is unhealthy for my body (cuerpo).

Physical Activity
During recess (el recreo ) at school, I swing
(me columpio )really high on the swing set!
I like to play (jugar) tag with my friends, but I have to be careful (tengo que tener cuidado ) not to trip or run into anyone!
When I get home from school (la escuela), I ride my bike (bicicleta) with my little brother, moving my legs (piernas) smoothly and quickly.

I sit with my best friends (mejores amigos) on
the bus.
I ask my friend (amiga) politely to borrow her marker.

Safety and Hygiene
I brush my teeth (los dientes), round and round,
up and down.
When I use the bathroom (el cuarto de baño),
I always remember to wash my hands (lavar
las manos)!
When walking to the bus (autobus),
I look both ways before crossing the street
(cruzar la calle).

Sleep and Quiet Time
I wake up in the morning (mañana) feeling
great and rested (descansado).
Getting plenty of sleep (sueño) helps me feel healthy (sano) and ready for the day!
If I feel mad, I give myself some quiet
time (tiempo callado) and a chance to relax
