I went into East Washington Academy with my EXSC 301 professor and a few classmates to teach 1st graders about exercise. A book called Henry Gets Moving was read to them, in which Henry himself learns about exercise and eating healthier. This project was started by my EXSC 301 professor and every Wednesday during the months of October and November students who wanted to volunteer to help could go to the school. This experience was absolutely amazing. I was able to use the handouts I made in my EXSC 301 class to give to the class that they were able to complete some with us while we were there and some to take home to have their parents help them with. Every time I came to the school they were ecstatic to start exercising. I would love to continue this next semester!

The residents played bingo and I played as well to help my resident win! It was a lot of fun and I would definitely do this again!

I helped decorate Bethel Pointe for the start of the holiday season! I decorated the entry of Bethel Pointe, bulletin boards, and the other rooms with Christmas decorations. I enjoyed being there and getting advice from the residents to where decorations should go! Such a great day for holiday cheer and decorating!
