The ABC's of Keeping the H1N1 Flu Away

While talking to a class of students yesterday I was reminded of one of the best ways to keep the H1F1 at bay....Knowing your ABC's!  That's right, by knowing how to sing the alphabet song or your ABC's, you too can help stop the spread of the H1N1 flu.  The Center for Disease Control recommends that you wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds under warm to hot water.  Since it takes about 20 seconds to sing through your ABC's fully, it's the perfect song to sing while you are wshing your hands.  Want to mix things up a bit?  Try singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" instead.  It also works great for this, and if you haven't figured it out already....it's the same tune.  Let's get everyone singing while washing your hands!  It makes an often forgotten about task much more enjoyable.
