Staying Healthy 101

 

The saying “SPRING iS IN THE AIR” isn’t always as welcoming as it sounds.

As spring is among us, the allergy season for some are in full swing. These allergies occur when outdoor molds release their spores, and trees, grasses, and weeds release tiny pollen particles into the air to fertilize other plants. Tree pollination is Feb-May, Grass pollen is May-June and weed pollen typically runs from Aug-Oct.

 

Here are a few reminders if anyone in your home has seasonal allergies:

Some Symptoms include:

  • Sneezing

  • Itchy nose and or throat

  • Nasal congestion

  • Clear, runny nose

  • Coughing

  • Itchy, watery or red eyes

 

Some treatment options:

  • Limit outdoor days when the pollen count is high.

  • Keep windows of home and car closed.

  • Shower after coming inside. Pollen in hair can bother you at night.

  • May use decongestants or antihistamines. If these medications are unsuccessful and symptoms worsen, you may talk to your doctor about an allergy injection.

 

HEALTHY kids become better LEARNERS,

Rachel Davis, 3rd-5th Grade Reading Teacher

 

I am finishing up my fourth year here at IXL. This is my fifth year teaching. I spent one year in kindergarten before I realized that was not the life for me! I came to IXL and fell in love with teaching fifth grade. At semester, I ventured into the world of teaching reading to third, fourth, and fifth graders. It has been an adventure, but I really enjoy teaching my students!! I love sharing my love for reading and encouraging them to become life long readers! I became an educator to make a difference in the world. I strive to teach my students to do the same. I am currently working on my masters degree at Emporia State University, so that leaves me with little spare time! However, in my spare time I love to read, spend time with my husband, visit family, and play board games. I also enjoy watching OSU football and OKC Thunder basketball!
