Ms. Saull and I are like-thinkers. As we are reviewing our "Daily Life Skills", we convey the importance of staying hydrated and eating healthy foods (including fruits and vegetables). We specifically discuss this point during lunch.

I also encourage frequent hydration but there are definitely more interruptions in my first grade class with requests for the bathroom.

I find that when my students drink a lot they are asking to go to the bathroom often. How do you handle students constantly needing to leave to go to the bathroom?

During the school day I myself need to remember to stay hydrated; my days are so full of keeping the students hydrated that I often forget to stay hydrated myself. Thank you for the reminder. Jacque

    It’s important to me that my students stay hydrated because when we aren’t hydrated our brain doesn’t work very well.

    Keep ourselves hydrated, so we can think well.

    I definitely make it a point to establish routines where they’re allowed to drink water. My students can have a water bottle on their desk. They have sticks that they can spend to go get water on their own. Then I also will just periodically send everyone one at a time to go get a drink.

    I just feel like they are better thinkers when their bodies are being cared for.
