These days, everyone’s being encouraged to wash their hands more and kids often need extra reminders and motivation to keep their mitts clean. One teacher came up with a smart way to help her students remember to wash up.
Shauna Woods, a third grade teacher in Hallsville, Missouri, has been teaching for eight years and says there’s always a spike in illnesses and absentees this time of year because of colds and viruses. So she was trying to think of a way to promote hygiene in the classroom to minimize sickness. And she decided to start stamping their hands with a “Mrs. Woods” stamp she uses in books.
