Safely Soak Up the Sun!
Empapa el Sol Seguramente!
By Kelley Nemeth

I decide to be safe in the sun this summer.
Decido estar a salvo del sol este verano.

I set a goal to apply sunscreen every 2 hours.
Puse una meta aplicar protector solar cada 2 horas.

I will put on sunscreen so I do not feel stressed and sunburned.
Pondré protector solar para que no me siento estresada y quemada por el sol.

I resolve my conflict of getting a sunburn by wearing a shirt to protect my body from the sun.
Resuelvo mi conflicto de conseguir una quemadura por llevando una camisa para proteger mi
cuerpo del sol.

I communicate with my mom to make her aware
of when I need to reapply my sunscreen.
Comunico con mi mamá para hacerla consciente de cuándo necesito aplicar mi protector solar.

I decide to put on sunglasses when I get out of the pool to protect my eyes.
Decido poner mis gafas de sol cuando salga de la piscina para proteger mis ojos.

I set a goal to put on a hat when I play in the sun.
Puse una meta a ponerse un sombrero cuando me juego en el sol.

I seek shade to prevent my skin from
feeling stressed and getting too much sun.
Busco la sombra para evitar que piel de se
siente estresada y recibiendo demasiado sol.

I know how to safely soak up the sun. Do you?
Sé con seguridad podrá tomar el sol. ¿Sabes?
