Welcome to your first day of school! I wanted to give you one important reminder before you begin. Many of your lessons below have an internet link for you to click on. When you go to the different internet pages for your lessons, please DO NOT click on anything else on that page except what the directions tell you to. DO NOT click on any advertisements or games. DO NOT click on anything that takes you to a different website. Just stay focused on your lesson and then close that window and you should be right back here for the next lesson. Okay?
- If you didn’t get here through My EP Assignments, I suggest you go there and create an account.
- This is a once-a-week course. It will appear in your lessons only once a week. You’ll need to make a plan as to when you are going to complete any assignments before the next week’s lesson.
- Before we begin our year, here’s a reminder. No one is allowed to touch you in a way that you don’t like. No one is allowed to tell you to show them any private part of your body. If someone is talking to you or touching you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, talk to your parents or someone your family trusts right away. And of course, you aren’t allowed to do the same to another. It can be illegal to share immodest pictures of yourself. Don’t let anyone ask them from you and don’t ever volunteer them.
- Read a health article. Tell a parent about what you learned. (*Note to parents: I don’t control the topics of these articles. You should be aware what your child is reading about. These can be something to discuss.)
- Practice your family fire drill.
- Read about the “Scientific Seven Minute Workout.”
- This is the end of your work for this course for your first day. You are allowed to move at your own pace (this is homeschooling), but it’s intended you complete one lesson each week.
- Read a health article. Tell a parent about what you learned.
- Do the 7 minute workout. You can find the directions and list of exercises lots of places. Here’s one.
- You could maybe do the workout on Monday and Tuesday, and on Thursday and Friday, and then read the article on Wednesday. Or you could do the workout every day, or come up with your own schedule. You should rest at least one day each week and not try to do it every day. You build muscles when your muscles are repairing themselves, so you need to give them time to do that.
