Theme II: Classroom Teachers (6wk)

X

 

★  ONE STAR TASK

Choose to be a healthy role model. Post the CATCH My Healthy Living Commitment sign to share how you model healthy habits. 

Make a point to demonstrate healthy habits in front of students. Let students “CATCH” you…
  • Drinking water instead of sugary beverages; eating fruits and vegetables at lunch.
  • Post (at least) one picture or video on social media of a faculty CATCH MVP engaged in a healthy activity. Use #CATCHMVP.

 

★★  TWO STAR TASK

Send home the Our CATCH School flyer (English/Spanish). It declares your classroom a “Healthy Snack Zone,” describes CATCH and offers healthy snack suggestions parents can send to school. 

Perhaps you can...
  • Ask a parent to make copies (English/Spanish) for you or email it to your parents.
  • Include this information as an agenda item at back-to-school night.
  • Coordinate the Healthy Snack Zone as a grade level project.

 

★★★  THREE STAR TASK

Teach one or two CATCH Go For Health lessons in this six-week theme. 

Keep in mind...
  • Classroom lessons (Kindergarten/1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th) integrate with many core instructional areas, e.g., language arts, mathematics, etc.
  • Lessons can be easily modified to decrease the amount of time needed to teach them.

 

♥  MY HEALTH BOOSTER

Monitor portion distortion. Food portion sizes have increased significantly over the last 20 years. Be “super wise” before you “super size.”

Some ideas...

  • Take the Portion Distortion Quiz
  • Read food labels for portion size.
  • Split meals at restaurants or plan to take half of the meal home.
