Have you ever thought about the saying “laughter is the best medicine”?
Well as it turns out, it’s true.
Not only will a good laugh cheer you up when you’re in a bad mood, but laughter can actually improve your immune system.
Laughter increases the number of antibodies in your blood stream while decreasing the number stress hormones, thus boosting your body’s ability to fight off diseases.
And teachers need all the immune system boosts they can get!
So get your class laughing during their typing time this week by challenging them to write some silly tongue twisters to practice new letters.
You can even build a collection of your favorites to use for future timed tests.
With any luck, you’ll help your students master some new letters in a fun way and maybe even avoid another nasty cold from getting passed around your classroom.
