I want to bring mobility to my classroom to teach my students the lifelong skill of keeping their joints healthy, thus lowering the overall risk of injury from doing any type of physical exertion/labor. I also want to use this as a time to incorporate mindfulness to help them understand how to ground themselves if they are panicking or anxious. As a Title I school, I know that some students are coming from places where the school is their safe haven, and they may not know how to cope with their trauma. Each student will be utilizing their yoga mat instead of the tile floor. This time on our mats will be used to discuss ways to cope with negative feelings, breathing exercises, and talking about growth mindset. Using this softer surface, they will do a series of movements that help prevent the risk of injury and/or assist in rehabilitating joints. Students should have coping mechanisms for traumatic or anxiety-inducing experiences that they can continue to practice throughout their lives. My goal is to give my students the chance to practice these mobility movements during the school year, and beyond third grade. This form of rehabilitation for joints and muscles will be helpful to students of all body types and athletic abilities. Practicing mindfulness will be beneficial for a healthier and happier mind. These assets can be carried with them for the rest of their lives.
