Encourage the children to talk at the beginning of the session.
Welcome to session four.
- How is everyone doing?
- Did anyone do something this week that they want to share with the class?
- Who remembers what we did last class?
Last class, we learned:
- symptoms of asthma include swelling, tightening and increased mucous production
- Preventer medication helps protect you from asthma triggers. It takes a long time to work.
- Reliever medication helps relax the muscles around your airways. It works fast.
- how to stop an airway from becoming clogged
What did your parents think of what you learned in last week's session?
Encourage a few children interpret their asthma diary records.
Who brought their fun book and diary with them?
Give a sticker or stamp to children that remembered.
Who would like to share what you recorded in your asthma diary?
- Provide positive reinforcement.
- Promote association between a cause/trigger/activity and the results, such as felt good, peak flow dropped or used more medication. This association should progress over time.
- Help discover new things and why things happen when they do.
