Monday, January 29: Moods: Where did that come from?
Happy. Sad. Goofy. Hyper. Why do we feel these different things, and how do we learn to deal with them? We’ll learn how to identify moods, causes, and what in the world is happening in our brains to cause these changes!
Monday, February 12: Do I Really Need Soap?
You don’t want to miss this germy gem of a class. We’re going to be playing our way through a whole lot of learning so that we know how to stay clean and keep germs away!
Monday, February 26: How We Get Sick and How to Get Over It
Achoo! Blehh. Ugh. Being sick is the worst! But how do our sniffers get stuffy, and why do our tummies get touchy? Learn about how we get sick and how to beat it!
Monday, March 12: Basic First Aid
Accidents happen, boo boos occur. Should we know how to fix them, treat them, and make them feel a-okay? Absolutely! Let’s learn the facts behind our first aid kits, and the helpful tips on how to heal. Whappy Buck sales this day!
Monday, March 26: Wilderness Safety
The weather is warming up, and we’re all out to play. But so are the bugs. And the harsh sunlight. And the overwhelming heat. Yikes, we better learn how to stay safe in the outdoors!
Monday, April 9: Stretching For Health!
Exercise is pretty famous, but no one ever talks about his side-kick: Stretching! We can’t exercise and get fit without keeping our bodies stretchy and limber. Learn the hows, whys, and whens of stretching!
Monday, April 23: Water Safety
Splish, splash, we’ll be learning so fast! We’re going to dive into the basics of water safety, so be ready to get wet. Since HealthWorks! isn’t filled with water, location is TBD.

When students arrive at HealthWorks!, they will check-in with Ms. Kim, the Educator, in the front lobby and get a name tag. Parents may pay for the week’s session at the front desk if needed. The kids will be directed to the Funtastic Floor to play before class gets started!
Shortly after 10:00, Kim will gather the students in Learning Lab 1 for a fun and interactive lesson on that week’s topic! Students are encouraged to participate and be involved in each class.
After the lesson, students head into the Zoom Room for P.E.! Kids will participate in fun physical challenges that relate back to the health lesson they just completed.
Parents are welcomed to stay for Health and P.E., however most parents drop their children off and return at 11:45. Parents will need to sign their child out at the Health Hut on the Funtastic Floor before leaving. Kids and parents may stay and play on the Funtastic Floor when Health and P.E. is over!
Do you have little ones younger than Kindergarten age? Hip Hoppers is a great program for them! Hip Hoppers is a story and activity time for the preschoolers with their grown-up that runs concurrently with the health program. The Hip Hoppers program does not follow the Home School Syllabus but covers health and developmental lessons and activities for toddlers and preschool children. For more information click here.
HeatlhWorks! provides parents with materials that support and reinforce the lessons learned in Health and Physical Education. Suggestions for additional at-home work and activities will be given weekly.
