@prekteachertips BEING PREPARED FOR ANYTHING? 💪🏼 PRICELESS. THE COST TO DIY THIS APRON: About $7.00 (plus the cost of the fabric) ⭐The band-aides are VERY IMPORTANT. When a kid has an ouchie, and you don’t stop what you are doing to get them a band-aide (You break their heart a little bit.) BUT WHEN YOU HAVE THEM IN YOUR APRON - you don’t even have to stop teaching, you can give a kid a band-aide while you carry on with whatever you’re doing — simultaneously making it clear to them, YOU CARE about their OUCHIES. (Which, to a kid, is BASICALLY the way to show them YOU ARE IMPORTANT. YOUR FEELINGS MATTER, I AM HERE TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU NEED ME… and all that other CRUCIAL STUFF for relationship building!) ⭐The chapstick is for a “smelly spot” - you put a dot on the back of a child’s hand and give them a moment of pure bliss — as they take deep breaths, enjoy a wonderful scent and have a little sensory moment they absolutely LOVE. ⭐ The stickers on the book ring are for positive reinforcement for the good behaviors you’re seeing all day every day! WHAT YOU’LL NEED: ✔ $1.50 Aprons: You can find these at Home Depot/Walmart/Lowes ✔ FABRIC: You choose what you like! ✔ Hot Glue Sticks/Gun: You’ll hot glue the fabric onto the apron. AND you’ll use hot glue to attach a strip of fabric to the smelly spot so you can slide a key ring in to attach it from the retractable badge holder. ✔ Retractable Badge Holder: .94 cents ✔ Lip Smackers: $1.50 ✔ Stickers $1.00 - buy them in bulk, cut them up and hole punch to add them onto a book ring ($.50) ✔ Book Ring/Binder Ring: $.50 ✔ Keyrings: $.10 ✔ Bandaids - $1.00 (Dollar store!) ✔ Fabric Flowers - (optional) ✔ Hole Punch ✔ Scissors 💚 FOLLOW FOR MORE! 🩵 PLEASE SHARE! 🙏🏼✈️ #preschool #preschoolteacher #prek #prekteacher #prekteachers #preschooleducation #preschoolideas #teachertips #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhoodeducator #kindergarten #kindergartenteacher #prekinder #teachersoftiktok #tiktokteacher ♬ Cartoon-style piano solo jazz(853970) - motofuji

@chemteacherphil If you’ve ever gotten a itchy after wearing a ring or necklace, its probably due to nickel. Lots of jewelry contains metal alloys containing nickel, and this nickel reacts with acids naturally found in our sweat, which can result in irritated skin. A simple test for nickel in jewelry involves a chelation reaction using a basic solution of dimethylgloxime, which reacts and traps nickel ions, forming a cherry red precipitate in the process. Chelating agents like dimethylgloxime are commonly used to remove toxic metals due to their ability to trap heavy metal ions. To test the jewelry, I soaked a qtip in the testing solution and rubbed it on the ring for about 30 seconds, and the pink result indicates that nickel is present. And don’t worry if you have jewelry with nickel in it, you can protect yourself by applying a coat of clear nail polish to prevent the reaction and irritation. #chemistry #chemteacherphil #STEM #learnontiktok ♬ original sound - Phillip Cook
