BHSM Stories: Pat Henry Elementary

Lawton, Oklahoma

I work in Lawton, Oklahoma at Pat Henry Elementary. This is my fourth year to go into each classroom to share about BHSM. Sometimes I present information about hearing and the dangerous sounds that may cause hearing loss. The children receive diagrams of the ear and sound levels of familiar objects and crossword puzzles with vocabulary. This year as a topic I chose social skills and how people use their voice and body language to communicate. I gave handouts related to the topic to the teachers and to the students. They also received chocolate ear suckers and chocolate lip suckers. They loved them. They all look forward to the next year and remind me to bring the suckers.
