Wash Your Hands!
By Jennifer Kenny

1     It was winter. It was fun in the snow. It was fun playing games. It was not fun being sick. A lot of kids had been sick at school. Some had colds. Some had the flu. Some hurt in the belly.
2     The nurse came to visit each class. She talked about germs. She wanted to stop the germs. She gave tips to keep the germs away.
3     The nurse came to Gabby's class. "Hi!!" she said. "How are you today?"
4     "Fine," the children said.
5     "Have any of you been sick this winter?" the nurse asked.
6     Most of them raised their hands.
7     "Do any of you want to be sick again?" the nurse asked.
8     The kids shook their heads. It is no fun to be sick.
9     "What makes you sick?" the nurse asked.
10     "Germs!" the kids yelled.
11     "That's right!" the nurse said.
12     "What is the best thing you can do to keep germs away?" the nurse asked.
13     The kids did not know what to say.
