My Students

My children are stressed and need a program that will support them in developing strategies to calm themselves down.

My pre-k children are 3, 4, and 5 year olds who attend a pre-k public school in a under-served community in Brooklyn, NY.

They are bright and wonderful children but many of them are dealing with adult issues of poverty, single parent homes, poor nutrition, and often health issues. It is often difficult for them to focus during lessons because they are thinking of other things that impact on their lives. They need support in learning how to develop strategies to self regulate and calm themselves so they can focus and learn and succeed in school.

My Project

I am requesting the Mindfulness and Movement Curriculum by Move with Me so that they can learn how to self regulate and calm themselves so they can focus during lessons and succeed in school.

Chronic stress makes it difficult for young brains to grow and develop.

By teaching my students these strategies from Mindfulness and Movement, they will learn how to develop executive function and self calming techniques which will serve them well as they move through the school system and in life. My goal is to help then succeed in school and I believe this program will be part of that solution.
