Music integration – Healthy life style

Senior KG students had Music integration with the topic “Healthy Lifestyle” in which they learnt about the importance of cleanliness and healthy food. The lyrics for the cleanliness poem are given below.

For the poem related to Food, you are requested to visit the following website. We have used this poem as a reference poem. The students had put in their own words (pertaining to healthy food items) replacing a few words in the original poem.

Brush your teeth (Cleanliness)

Brush your teeth,and wash your face

Have a bath on all days.

scrub your body,shoulders and toes,

wash between your nails and toes.

Remember to wash behind, your neck and knees,

And wipe your nose whenever you sneeze.
