To the Teacher
Healthy Happy Habits is written on a third-grade level. The lessons are short and quite simple, yet they teach basic, every-day habits that can greatly benefit the child, both in physical safety and well-being and in the art of getting along with others.
As children grow, they must be taught to take responsibility for their actions. They must learn that a person is very much what he teaches himself to be. Thus the emphasis on habits. You can learn to be clean and neat. You can learn to practice safety and to help others. You can learn to be courteous and pleasant.
We do not recommend that you start this book the first week of the term. The book is divided into 5 chapters with 6 parts to each chapter. If you do one part each week, it will take 30 weeks to finish it. Start only early enough in the term to allow you to finish the program by the end of the term.
A suggested class routine schedule is provided in the beginning of the workbook. The five tests in the back of the book are designed to be cut out, and then given to the student to do after each chapter. To make your own teacher's edition, simply get an extra workbook and fill in the answers along with any personalized teaching notes.
