Catch that Sneeze Please!

Ever found yourself in this positon?

As a teacher, I'm sure you have! You hear the build up and have no time to escape before the ACHOO heard 'round the classroom nearly knocks you over. You spend the rest of the day simultaneously trying  to not be grossed out and mentally calculating if you'll be sick for the weekend. Now imagine that that sneeze was caught in a tissue instead of showering you. That's why I immediately agreed to join the  team when Kleenex approached me to be a teacher ambassador.

In a perfect world, we could train all of our kids to sneeze into a tissue instead of sneezing all over us. The first step in this great plan of plans, is to actually have tissues available in the classroom. We don't have them as part of our standard supplies, so we ask for them every year on our supply list. This year, if you choose to specifically request Kleenex brand with box tops, you can enter your school for a chance to win 250,000 box tops! All you have to do is enter your school's supply list on between April 17 and July 17. Each qualifying entry will also receive a Kleenex share pack, while supplies last.

As part of my work with Kleenex, I'll be posting a video of a great lesson that you can easily replicate with your students when you return to your classrooms in the fall. It just might be enough to convince your sneezy students to always grab a tissue!


  1. That picture is so gross. I need to show that to my class. I don't think they realize how far their sneezes travel. Ugh. I once had a Pre-k student sneeze on me when my mouth was open. It still makes me... oh let's not talk about that. :)

  3. This has nothing to do with your post, I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you! You saved our field day on Tuesday. We ended up with rain and a muddy field. So we had to improvise inside. We had kinda planned a few ideas, "just in case". But I needed a few more things to do in my room. Your "minute to win end of year" activity post saved my day! I stopped at the local grocery store and picked up a few items and I was set to go! We had so much fun! So thank you for all your amazing products (I have purchased many) and sharing all the great things you are doing in your class!

  4. I would like to ditto M Niels post. Thank you very much for sharing your remarkable talent.
