Presentation Plan

It is very important to incorporate healthy concepts and movement into the workplace.
My workplace is a preschool, so I decided to present a plan that would promote health and
wellness for both students and teachers. My plan was to implement a daily physical activity
within the lesson plan of each class. Each class would devote at least two-fifteen minute sessions
of their lesson plan to conduct a physical activity and participate with the children. SHAPE
America stated that All children from birth to age 5 should engage daily in physical activity that
promotes movement skillfulness and foundations of health-related fitness (2009). The following
are the guidelines for physical instruction for preschoolers: Guideline 1: Preschoolers should
accumulate at least 60 minutes of structured physical activity each day. Guideline 2:
Preschoolers should engage in at least 60 minutes -- and up to several hours -- of unstructured
physical activity each day, and should not be sedentary for more than 60 minutes at a time,
except when sleeping. Guideline 3: Preschoolers should be encouraged to develop competence
in fundamental motor skills that will serve as the building blocks for future motor skillfulness
and physical activity. Guideline 4: Preschoolers should have access to indoor and outdoor areas
that meet or exceed recommended safety standards for performing large-muscle activities.
Guideline 5: Caregivers and parents in charge of preschoolers' health and well-being are
responsible for understanding the importance of physical activity and for promoting movement
skills by providing opportunities for structured and unstructured physical activity (SHAPE
America, 2009). Within the physical activity, teachers will also deliver positive messages to the
children, promoting emotional wellness.


Lesson Plan
Class: 3 year old class
Objective: deliver a physical activity program to the children, while engaging a fun atmosphere,
and promoting emotional wellness through positive and encouraging messages
Direct instruction: Teachers in the class to participate in physical activities
Required materials: Music, other preferred items
Modifications: Safety/management - Activity should be conducted in an area out of harm, away
from door entrances, sharp edges of tables, no slippery floors
Cognitive/physical disability Students with physical or cognitive disabilities may participate or
not if unwilling to. Alternative activities will be available for those who are overly stimulated. A
teacher can assist those with physical disabilities by helping them move their bodies, and
creating an energetic atmosphere for them.

The highlights of the presentation included: most of the students participated in the
activities, and they enjoyed dancing as a group. What didnt go as planned was that some of the
students were not interested in participating, and I was not able to capture all the students that
were participating in the video. Next time, I will be more enthusiastic with the students and get
them excited to participate.
The other lead teacher of the 3s class observed the music and movement session that was
led by me. The teacher observed my performance and provided me with positive feedback. The
teacher commented that my energy was good and enjoyed seeing me display the movements to
the children. She also expressed that I could be more enthusiastic to engage more of the children.
This relates to response latency; I need to work on having better transitions and keeping the
attention of the participants. In this specific situation of working with young children, it takes
much effort to engage every child and maintain their interest. It can be challenging managing
behavior during an activity such as this, especially with children with special needs. For
example, I have a few children who have attention deficiencies, have a hard time completing an
activity and following directions. I need to work on being able to maintain the participating
group, while also engaging those students with special needs.
I offered a few positive phrases during the presentation, but I could have used more to
boost the energy and get more of the children engaged in the activity. Using phrases such as you
got it!, There you go!, Great work! would encourage the children to keep up what they are
doing, as well as boost their self-esteem, enhancing their emotional well-being. I also could
increase the use of names in the presentation, to make the participants aware that I notice them
and care about their participation.


Overall, I think this is a beneficial opportunity for the school to take initiative and hold
teachers accountable for making sure their students are meeting physical expectations, while also
promoting health in the workplace. I enjoyed creating this project, while capturing the essence of
encouraging physical activity in young children. I have learned about what went well, and what I
can do better for my future presentations.
