Calm, Cool and Collected Preschoolers

My students need yoga mats (will create 18 from roll) to have their own space for daily yoga sessions.

My Students

Our preschoolers come to their first school experience excited, ready to learn and full of questions, energy and emotions. We strive to provide an environment that meets the needs of the whole child by providing opportunities for sensory and motor developments. We provide areas for pretend play, we teach small group lessons for academics, and schedule times for loud/active times and quiet/chill times. This all may sound like a typical preschool classroom, however, we do a things a little different.

Our blended classroom is a blend of 18 children half of which have special education needs but who are all 3, 4 or 5 years old - needless to say our days are busy!

Together, we learn patience, kindness, acceptance, problem solving and how to be a team.

My Project

Yoga sessions with preschool children help children feel something they do not always have the opportunity to feel, a sense of calm. We have used yoga as a transition to small group, academic learning activties. We have discovered the children have an increased focus and can stay engaged longer. Yoga also provides opportunities for gross motor development in both children with special needs and typically developing children; as their motor skills develop, their bodies become stronger and their confidence is boosted.

Along with focused attention, gross motor development, and aiding in increased confidence, yoga sessions provide opportunities for following simple directions, a chance to heighten vocabulary, a sense of spacial awareness, and an opportunity for preschoolers to feel calm, cool and collected.

Yoga sessions have been successful in aiding physical and emotional development in our preschoolers. With yoga mats, I am looking forward to seeing what more in depth yoga sessions can do for the growth of our preschoolers!
