I always crack up when I see this. It's funny, because it's true. amiright?
I have bottles of "hanitzer" all over my classroom - my desk, the sink, the computer center, small group table, on random counters. I encourage my kids to hang individual bottles on their backpacks and use them as needed. My kids know when someone sneezes I always say two things, "God bless you. Go squirt your hands" It pretty much comes out in one sentence now. I'm kind of surprised I don't say it to my husband or random strangers out in the world.
There's good reason for my standard reply. In a recent study conducted by the makers of Purell, absenteeism caused by illness was 51 percent lower in classrooms that used Purell Hand Sanitizer regularly and implemented a hand hygiene educational program versus classrooms that did not. That's good enough reason for me!
Some pretty awesome stuff actually:
63 daily winners will receive Purell Advanced products
8 weekly winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card
30 Grand Prize winners will receive a Healthy Family Prize Pack, including a variety of fun, healthy-habit forming gifts.
I'll be back at the end of the month to see how went.
Get ready and share the fun, not the germs!
