Yuck Bucket TM Cards & Student /Teacher Booklets | Back to School Activity



Are you teaching about germs and how not to spread them? This packet will help students become aware when they put something in their mouth, allow teachers to properly sanitize toys and items, and help keep the classroom safe/clean. Use the pocket chart cards for a hands-on lesson and to introduce vocabulary. Use the cute teacher book to read the social story and introduce the Yuck Bucket TM. Then review with the student booklets for added fine motor, coloring, and early literacy skills!

This is perfect for PreK, Preschool, Kindergarten, your ELL and special education students!
