  • Stanley's "This is the life"

    A black bear named Stanley learns the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits

    Making healthy choices, Stanley the bear shows children how healthful nutrition and exercise give the body the energy and strength to live a life full of fun and adventure. When Stanley goes on an eating binge and accidentally falls asleep in a camper, he suddenly awakes and finds himself far away from home and stranded at a drive-in - which appears to be "the life." However, after days of eating cookies and candy, sleeping and watching movies, Stanley realizes he is not living "the life." He is very overweight and feeling very tired. He doesn't have the energy to fish, run or climb trees anymore. In his effort to get his real life back, Stanley learns that eating healthy food makes him feel better and gives him the strength to do all of the fun things he really liked to do in the forest. "He thought about the food at the drive-in, the frightening chase in the forest, and the long journey home. Now Stanley stayed away from people and their cookies. He caught fish. He ate pine nuts and huckleberries. He felt healthy. He felt strong.

    .  Stanley s "This Is the Life!" will help you:

    • Promote healthy nutrition
    • Introduce the right foods to give the body energy
    • Emphasize why it's important to be active

    A reindeer in the Arctic Circle learns a lesson about being dependable and trustworthy

    Travel north to the Arctic Circle, where reliability can be a matter of survival. Inger may have the whitest fur and an impressive set of antlers, but his friends just can't depend on this young reindeer. First he disrupts a wedding. Next he forfeits the big sled race.

  • Safety: Out of the Danger Zone

    Safety - Awareness and Response. Grades 4-6

    By stressing a single appropriate response to danger, this video helps prepare boys and girls to respond promptly and predictably to safeguard themselves and others. When they discover an old mystery game in Grandpa's closet, three youngsters also discover valuable personal safety advice. The "Out of the Danger Zone" game presents the players with a series of scenarios that tests their ability to handle dangerous situations. These scenarios deal with gun safety, physical safety, internet safety, and drug safety. As each situation unfolds, players are reminded to be aware of their environment at all times, to recognize the danger of certain types of situations, and to respond quickly in two simple steps:

    • Get away from the danger.
    • Tell an adult.

    This sound advice will help intermediate students respond confidently when their personal safety is at risk.

  • Safety: If You Feel Danger

    Safety - Awareness and Response. Grades K-3

    By stressing a single appropriate response to danger, this video helps prepare boys and girls to respond promptly and predictably to safeguard themselves and others. We hope the children in our care will never have to confront a truly dangerous situation, but as this video stresses, every child needs to be on the lookout for scary situations and prepared to respond. When children feel danger, the proper response is simple:

    • Stop
    • Get away.
    • Tell an adult.

    A group of third graders, the Safety Squad Singers, and an empowering theme song punch these points home and underscore a series of scenarios dealing with gun safety, with inappropriate approaches by adults, and with drug safety.

    Annie begins by explaining the transition from baby to permanent teeth and then explains how Funsters can keep those permanent teeth through a lifetime program of good habits and safe behaviors — careful brushing and flossing, avoidance of sugary snacks, and common sense precautions to protect teeth from accidental injury.

    Funsters are prepared for a visit to the dentist with an introduction to the equipment, tools and procedures that are included in a routine checkup and cleaning. Annie Funelli makes sure Funsters and youngsters know how to make their teeth last!

  • Take Care of Your Skin, Hair and Nails

    With Annie Funelli and the Funsters! Grades K-3

    Annie Funelli and the Funsters show students how to have fun, stay healthy and take good care of themselves.

    The unpredictable Annie blows into Annie's Place straight from her tropical vacation, but as she soon makes clear to the Funsters, there is no vacation from taking care of our skin, hair, and nails. From her seemingly bottomless red travel tote, Annie pulls soap, shampoo, bath brush, nailbrush, sunscreen, combs, brushes, nail clippers, and more, to introduce Funsters — and your students — to essentials of hygiene and good health.

    Annie talks about germs and the importance of cleanliness, with special emphasis on the when, how, and how long of hand washing — a message underscored by the 15-second Handwashing Song. The Funsters learn about protecting their skin from the sun and from miscellaneous bumps, bites, and itches — with a special warning about poison ivy.

    After some wise words from Annie about keeping hair and nails clean and groomed, the Funsters don their new sunhats to wrap up another entertaining day at Annie's Place.
