Caring for their Bears 2
Kindergarten students at Smithtown Elementary recently participated in a teddy bear clinic. Nurses from Stony Brook University Children’s Hospital visited with the students to teach them about basic first aid, safety practices and help ease the fear of doctors and hospitals.

Each student brought his/her favorite stuffed animal to practice and learned ways to stay safe. The students enjoyed diagnosing their animals and used a Band-Aid to fix a wound. They also learned songs to help them brush their teeth, wear a helmet and wash their hands.
