A Good Breakfast The pupils in the first grade are talking about their breakfast. They enjoyed discovering the food that makes a good breakfast. Here are a few poems that the pupils composed. HURRY! HURRY! When I wake up in the morning I am hungry as can be I hurry to the table And see what foods for me. Linda Mingo Age 6 A GOOD BREAKFAST I have a good breakfast every morn Of ceral, fruit, and milk And it makes me get up at dawn And I feel as fine as silk. Jacqueline Cowan Age 6 MILK I drink my milk every morning, And I like it. It makes me healthy and strong And I like it. Frieda Alston Age 6 CEREAL I eat my cereal every morning To be very strong and healthy. To eat cereal every morning You don't have to be wealthy. Sharon Foster Age 7 BREAD Oh dear, oh dear We have no bread We go everywhere But we can't find bread Ednor Green Age 7 FRUIT I eat my fruit every morning It makes me work and play. I eat my fruit every evening It makes me healthy and gay. Philip Floyd Age 6 A.C. Robinson, Teacher Clean Hands Hurray for James! He always has clean hands. I asked him how he did it. He said, "It is easy. I use plenty of warm water and soap and I always remember to wash them at important times." "What are important times?" I asked him. The important times I wash my hands are: 1. After going to the toilet 2. After seeing a sick friend 3. After playing with pets 4. Before eating 5. Before handling dishes 6. Before handling food James hands were smooth and soft, too. He told me he dried them well after each washing to keep them from chapping. It is our job to keep our hands clean by washing them at the important times as James does. Ellsworth McKinney S.E. White, Teacher Milk Drink plenty of milk, And you can't go wrong, Milk makes muscles big and strong, And you'll feel good all day long. Ronald Davis Age 6 C. Mitchell, Teacher Clean Teeth I brush my teeth every day. Because that is the thing to do. But I like to clean my teeth. How about you? Peggy Charity Age 8 A. Roberts, Teacher Milk Milk is very good to drink, I drink it morning, noon and night It makes my teeth grown healthily And my bones grown just right. Jacqueline Patterson Age 6 C. Mitchell, Teacher Our "Ready for School" Club The boys and girls in our room have learned many ways of helping our parents. Our "Ready for School Club" has especially helped us to form good health habits at home and at school. Everyone can be a gold star member, by keeping the rules. First we learn how easy it is to keep ourselves attractive. Most of the things are done at home. We learn how to wash, sew, and press some of our clothes. Where there are brothers and sisters, the boys can polish the shoes, while the girls wash sox, ribbons and some underwear. We keep our school clothes fresh my wearing play clothes at home. We bathe everyday and care for our teeth, fingernails and hair. How good you feel and how well you look when you do these things. Second, we have our pencils sharpened, notebooks and other materials ready by nine o'clock. If we are tardy it is checked against us. Third, we check on the kind of food we eat. We must have a nutritious breakfast everyday. Many of us can help at home by preparing cereal, eggs or toast. It is fun to look well, feel well, play well, and work well, at home and at school. Pupils of 5B H.B. Jackson, Teacher
