Three Keys to Health

What Has Been Happening in Ms. Naylor's Class?

This month we are focusing on various ways to prepare for activities and prevent muscle injuries. Each week we will be discussing a different topic that will help the students to learn about the proper techniques for preparing themselves for athletic activities, as well as the best ways to prevent injury.

  • Week 1: A well balanced diet (Bring a healthy snack)
  • Week 2: Sleep (Monitor sleeping habits)
  • Week 3: Stretching (Yoga, Yoga, Yoga!)
  • Week 4: What to do if you are injured (RICE)
