Read book "The School Nurse from the Black Lagoon" by Mike Thaler. Discuss how she is different from our nurse. How is she the same? Is it scary to go to the Nurse's office? Then read the poem "Bandaids" by Shel Silverstein. Discuss times you went to the nurse to get a band-aid. Where did she put it? Did you feel better after she put it on? Make a class book, each child using a band-aid and drawing a picture of the Nurse putting a band-aid on their "boo-boo". Staple pages together, include poem "Bandaids", make a cover and present it to her on Nurse's Day as a thank you from the class. One the last page we put "Thanks you for making all our (First Grade) "boo-boos" better."
