Daily Wellness

The goal of daily wellness is to support the children's well-being and development in all areas. Much research shows daily exercise is connected to better school performance. This is the reasoning behind our Daily Wellness exercise HomeFun. Students are expected to exercise for at least 20 minutes for 20 days each month.

The children have been working hard writing, rehearsing, and presenting their mindfulness scripts this term. They have explored what it means to engage in Mindful activities such as Mindful breathing, eating, cooling down and art-making. This public speaking and wellness assignment supports our learning in the following areas:

Language Arts
-used criteria about the content, language and delivery to structure their speeches
-incorporated descriptive language to create visualizations for the audience

Health Education
-they explored practices that support physical and emotional development

Visual Arts
-created title pages that represented the theme of their scripted speech

Social Responsibility
-exercising democratic rights and responsibilities by identifying simple ways to improve the school, community and world.

An important goal of this project was to support my students' self-regulation skills. Please read this article for more information. http://www.cea-ace.ca/education-canada/article/self-regulation-calm-alert-and-learning
