In this benchmark assignment, you will be planning a Wellness Fair
for the students and families of your kindergarten class. The Wellness
Fair will incorporate the mini-lesson plans you previously created in
this course. You will also create a digital invitation to the Wellness Fair.
Part 1: Mini-Lessons Rationale
In preparation for the Wellness Fair, review the feedback from your
instructor regarding the health, nutrition, safety, and fitness
mini-lessons you designed throughout the course.
Reflect on the feedback from your instructor including how you would
revise your lessons. In 250-500 words, write a rationale explaining
your instructional decisions, including any revisions, for each
wellness lesson. Make sure to include how those decisions directly
support the characteristics and needs of the “Class Profile” students.
Part 2: Wellness Fair Event Plan
Health, safety, nutrition, and fitness are topics you have been
teaching to your kindergarten students through your mini-lessons;
however, it is also beneficial to educate the families on the same
topics. Therefore, your goal in this section is to design a wellness
fair to educate the families on these topics so they can support their
children at home more successfully.
In order for the fair to be effective, you will need community
support to assist in providing educational booths in the areas of
health, nutrition, safety, and fitness. For this part of the
assignment, you will create a 1,000-1,250 word plan outlining the
wellness fair for your students’ families, including how you will
involve the community. Include the following in your plan:
- Agenda: Outline the timing for each activity during the event
in a simple agenda format.
- Welcome: Briefly describe how
you will introduce the event to all participants.
Activity: Plan an opening activity for the families and children
that will explain the purpose of the wellness event with the
community and promote shared values and expectations in creating a
healthy, respectful, and challenging learning environment.
- Community Resource Booths: Outline four community resource
booths that will provide information on health, safety, nutrition,
and fitness (one booth per topic). Include a community resource you
will invite to represent the topic, 3-4 interesting and important
statistics relating to the booth’s topic and young children, and a
50-100 word description of why that topic is important to the
development of young children. Briefly describe how each booth will
address the needs of children in the class both with and without
exceptionalities, based on the “Class Profile.”
Activity: Plan a closing activity for the families and children that
employs strategies and opportunities to ensure future collaboration
with families while pursuing the well-being of students in the areas
of health, nutrition, safety, and fitness.
- Rationale: Write
a 250-500 word rationale explaining how the Wellness Fair supports
collaboration between faculty, students, families, and the larger
community. In addition, discuss why this collaboration is vital to
promoting children’s development and learning, including children
- Support your plan with 2-3 scholarly
Part 3: Digital Wellness Fair Invitation
Create a digital invitation to promote the Wellness Fair to
families, colleagues, and the community as well as share information
about the growth of young children in the areas of health, safety,
nutrition, and fitness. The invitation should be concise, visually
appealing for the audience, encourage participation and collaboration,
and include 2-3 resources that support the content.
