What Health Ed looks like at the Elementary Level!

Come see what you can take and fuse into your elementary curriculums through seeing elementary level health education. Everything from resources, lesson ideas, and more will be shared! Also an endless look at my personal library of health and wellness books that make great connections to emotions, sportsmanship, nutrition, mindfulness, and more!

Traditional Social Dance
Take a group of kids or adults, add lively music, give a few directions and voila! A sense of community is created as we hook elbows and swing around one another, then do-si-do and sashay. Coming from a centuries-old tradition that is still done around the country, social dancing persists because, as you will experience in the workshop, it is fun, easy to do, for all ages and typically resonates on the physical, mental and emotional aspects of each person.

Healthy Relationships
Dating violence is defined as controlling, abusive, and aggressive behavior in a romantic relationship.  One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. It can happen in straight or gay relationships. It can include verbal, emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse. Through the help of Tina E from Voices Against Violence, Newfound Regional High School has been able to educate students on how to recognize the red flags of abusive relationships and how to safely set boundaries within all relationships.  Students are given tools and resources for self-care and taught skills for helping others through bystander intervention.  These presentations also address bullying and sexual harassment, with an emphasis on communication, consent and personal respect.  All lessons have been carefully designed to meet New Hampshire Health Education Standards and reinforce the lessons being taught through my curriculum.
