Note to Self…
If a child says their head and tummy hurts, and you ask them if they think they are going to throw up, and they say maybe, odds are great that they will vomit at that very moment.
If said child is one that has been crying every afternoon since school started, and you have a feeling she just wants to go home so see her mom, IGNORE that feeling.
When taking said child to the office because the crying is disrupting the class, take a garbage can with you. Chances are great that said child will vomit.
When interviewing prospective K-2 Failsafe paraprofessionals for your classroom, make sure they don’t run when they see vomit.
When talking to parents at the beginning of the year, make sure they send extra clothes just in case their child vomits.
When planning a program that involves running in place, jumping jacks, and singing and dancing, make sure to schedule it in the morning, and NOT after lunch. Someone might vomit.
Guess what happened yesterday in kindergarten? Yep, you got it.
