8th grade health curriculum
As we hit the down hill slope towards the end of the year the 8th graders and i will discuss sexual health. I know , I know ... you read that and cringed! But its not as bad as you or they might think. Over the next ten weeks we will cover:
Communication Goal setting Healthy Relationships Pregnancy Prevention
STDs Risk and Risk avoidance Impacts of Pregnancy and STDs and Making a plan
Now your children will share with you that one of the ground rules in this unit is that we have to use the anatomical names for body parts. Also, that i always encourage them to talk with someone at home about these classes as well. BUT... we all know that, thats easier said than done.
Feel free to reach out with questions or concerns... or even tips on how to talk to your child about this topic.
