I am a student at the University of Houston. I would like to be a kindergarten teacher. Next summer I am taking my certification to London to (cross your fingers) teach at an American school there.

These are the main ones I would use. Of course word them in a way your students will understand. Listen and follow directions Use tools only as instructed Do not touch anything unless instructed Wear proper safety gear Good Luck!!!

I would explain the importance of having clean hands, talk about germs and what they can do, then put handwashing into the daily routine. Even put it in the daily schedule, usually before eating, after going outside, when you first enter the classroom and always after bathroom time, then you can explain how washing hands can also get paint, glue etc. off.

Great point! Younger students do enjoy exploring their environments and really get into nature and experiements having to do with nature. If you want to startoff small, try collecting evidence from nature such as interesting leaves, grass, flowers, bark etc. then they can do rubbings and learn about the characteristics.
