My Students

This is my fourth year teaching Transitional Kindergarten. This is the newest grade level that the state has established for students that are 4 and turn 5 in September, October, November and December. The only students that are allowed in the class are students born between September 2 and December 2.

Imagine a classroom full of 23 four year olds all born within 90 days of each other!

The students attend school from 8:45 am - 2:45 pm, and our days are very busy and very full. Our classroom is 11 boys and 12 girls, all are curious, imaginative, active, and eager to learn.

My Project

TK students need concrete examples to learn concepts well. We will be using the materials daily to gain the benefits of being calm and present in the classroom.

With yoga pictures, games, books and learning tools my TK students will be able to learn and practice mindfulness and yoga in the classroom.

We have the yoga mats and now need these additional resources to help my 5 year old students reach their maximum potential! Learning mindfulness and relaxation techniques through yoga and other age appropriate curriculum will help students self regulate, concentrate and get the most out of school every day!
