As reported on many websites, Mrs Woods from the USA has found a great way of helping children to remember to wash their hands throughly by using a self-inking rubber stamp!
“Students got stamps on their hands this morning. If it’s gone by the end of the day from washing their hands, they get a prize. We are trying.”
Mrs Woods said the school children were washing their hands many times a day to try and win the prizes.
She told Good Morning America: “It’s a fact of life that many kids are in close corners, interacting with one another all day.
“They share many things, including germs. I’ve had a Ms Woods stamp for years and have used it to stamp my classroom books”.
“I decided to grab that on a Monday morning, told students to wash their hands in the classroom sink and then come see their teacher — this was their morning work as we call it.
“I put the stamp on their hands and they were sold when I told them prizes were involved.”
“Providing a visual reminder and incentive has boosted their hygiene regimen. I even joined in on the fun and put a stamp on my hand to be their positive role model.”
