|Lakeshore Elementary Kindergarten Team at NL #1
Nutrition and Learning
This year NEP launched a new approach to our annual teacher nutrition education professional development.
Four Kindergarten teachers from Lakeshore Elementary took what they learned at the workshops… and aced their Healthy Report Card!
A three-part Nutrition & Learning (NL) series was designed to provide teachers a professional learning community where they could learn effective strategies for nutrition education.
Workshop Goal: To empower each participant to promote and implement healthy eating and physical activity in his/her classroom and school community
Workshop Objectives: In the workshop participants will:
- Increase knowledge of strategies and resources to create a classroom environment which supports academic success
- Identify ways to support the Health Education and SFUSD Wellness Policy through nutrition education classroom lessons and hands-on activities
The series included the following:
NL-#1: Setting Up A Healthy Learning Environment
Strategies and resources to incorporate nutrition
education and physical activity into the elementary classroom
NL-#2: Linking to Science Curriculum
Curriculum resources to integrate science standards
and garden links into nutrition education
NL-#3: Nutrition Links to Family & Community
Nutrition education resources for families and family health events
The Kindergarten team from Lakeshore Elementary attended all three workshops. After each workshop, they collaborated to promote nutrition and healthy eating with Lakeshore students, staff and families. Here is their healthy report card.
