Circles + Scissors Handwashing
Circles + Scissors Handwashing is a fun and effective handwashing method that teaches kiddos the RIGHT WAY to wash hands. The method is in the name! Teach them Circles + Scissors and they'll have the tools they need for clean hands every time. Here are the five motions:
Wring Around the Wrist
Voila! Kids can't resist washing hands with soap when it's this fun! These motions instruct handwashers on EXACTLY WHAT TO DO, ensure that they WASH WITH SOAP for the appropriate amount of time and are FUN! Just think, by simply washing hands correctly, we can significantly reduce the spread of sickness. When our kids become confident, independent handwashers then our schools, homes and communities become healthier + happier. Circles + Scissors Handwashing curriculum is uniquely designed for kids but is certainly for everyone! Check out these 3 unique aspects listed below:
Fun in the Process
Circles + Scissors curriculum presents handwashing in a fun way!
The most effective way to motivate kids to wash up is with fun! Fear of germs and sickness will only motivate children for as long as they feel scared. Positive language engages them to, "Have more fun...wash your hands!" Explaining to children that when they have clean hands and remain healthy, they get to do the things that they love, like play soccer or attend a friend's birthday party. Clean hands means more fun!
Circles + Scissors signs are made with non-readers in mind!
Most beginner handwashers are non-readers. Simple symbols help make the process of handwashing easy for them to understand. Cutting my designs from paper, gives them a playful look with which children can easily identify. And you guessed it, the Circles + Scissors images are made to look like a reverse "Hugs + Kisses": Sharing that handwashing love, straight from momma!
Join the MOVEment
Each of the 5 Steps of Circles + Scissors has a body motion to get kids moving and remembering!
It's no surprise (especially to those of us who have a 6 year old son!) that educational practices are shifting to more kinesthetic styles of learning. As kids move their bodies, they remember things better! When children add together the 5 motions of Circles + Scissors, they are ready to hit the dance floor! By the end of the lesson they are laughing and spinning, a fun and engaging brain break for students.
Momma on a mission
Jenny Middleton Iverstine
My handwashing story (and some of the most incredible, chaotic, amazing moments of my life) began 9 years ago when my first child was born. An overly-friendly stranger reached for my blue-eyed baby and Momma Bear Wear(baby clothing line) was created as a way to message, "Keep your booger fingers off!" Grrr!!! I didn't really want to bite anyone, I just wanted them to understand the huge effect their big germs could have on my little one. Soon after, my eyes were opened to the need for handwashing.
Continuing on my parenthood journey through public and private elementary schools, I began to notice that a systematic handwashing method was needed for children. So combining my clean-hands enthusiasm + non-profit background + mom-attentiveness, I created the fun + effective handwashing method, Circles + Scissors. My mission came bubbling up: Teach children HOW TO wash their hands the right way!
Now I'm on a mission for 1 MILLION PAIRS of clean hands, but I can't do it alone!
