Today, I spent most of the day putting everything I worked on for my project into the template that was given to me. I also made sure there were no errors in my work and everything had the correct format. It took me about an hour to rearrange the template so that the correct times aligned with the activity. It took me 2 hours to put the activities in the template and and hour and a half to look up two different activities that could substitute the face painting and puppet show, as well as finding a creative activity that older kids would enjoy. I spent the last minutes adding in information to all templates such as where I found the supplies, calculations, and bolding the activity sheet. I turned this in to my preceptor the following day.
Today I started working on my activity description sheet. It took about 2 hours because I looked up every activity, described how to play and facilitate it, the supplies needed, and videos to explain better. I used the same template as last time, Microsoft word.
I had a zoom meeting with my preceptor at 11:30am. This lasted for about 30 minutes. We talked about my work that I've submitted so far and what she expects of me the remaining of my internship. I still have to turn in my week 6 project but we decided on a date that I will be able to send it. Immediately after our meeting, I worked on moving my budget sheet into Microsoft excel to give it a more professional look. I also added a few more supplies to the list that I overlooked or didn't know of YRCC had it in the storage closet since I cant check.
I spent most of my time today working on the budget list. I was looking up all the supplies needed for the activities that I've chosen to do so far. I mainly looked up Walmart and dollar store prices to compare. I went with Walmart because they had more and better supplies. I used Microsoft word to have a rough draft copy before I put it in Microsoft excel.
I started back working on the activities for the summer program. Another thing I wanted to put on the schedule was a puppet show. I looked up available people who could do it in Fayetteville. I found a few people and but it was hard to get in touch with anybody. I then looked up if there was a way we could do it on our own. That also took a lot to work with in a little amount of time. I decided on removing this from the schedule and maybe pushing it back to a later time.
Before decided on calling the sites for the field trip schedule, I decided to look up each website and read on their COVID-19 policy and if they were still open to answer any questions I had. I started working on this around 2:30. This took me about 3 hours to look up every site and read on that information. After I got all the information down, I called the ones who were open. A few didn't answer the phone and the ones who did told me that reservations still cant be made. I finished this assignment around 6:45.
I took this time to focus strictly on finding information about faceprinting. I wanted the kids to get their face painted so I looked up where or how to do it. I found a lot of information but it wasn't helpful because of the times that we are in right now with the COVID-19 pandemic. There was too much to put into this idea with difficult times so I thought it was best to put this to the side.
Starting at 2pm I completed all assignments given for week 3. This included transferring all the activities on my word document sheet to the template given and the activities page in more detail. I explained them by stating what they are, how to play, supplies needed, and videos explaining it. I emailed my finishing tasks to my supervisor at 5pm.
From 3-4:30 I called each site for the summer camp weeks to set up reservations. They explained to me that because of the COVID outbreak, I cant schedule a reservation until after March 31st. After I called everyone I could, I worked on my final draft for week 3 summer camp by putting it in the summer camp template and finishing an activities description list. I did this from 4:30-7. Once I finished week three, I worked on week 6 rough draft. I looked up fun activities to do so I was able to finish the activities description list and supplies. I still have to do the budget list for this week. I worked on this until about 8:00.
Today for my shift I worked the front desk. I checked members in and worked on my summer camp planning assignment. It was open gym today for the kids so there was not that many. The kids who did come played with the scooters and imagination playground.
