MeMoves for Mastering Self-Regulation

My students need MeMoves to give them constructive breaks to help them learn to self regulate in order to be ready to learn.

My Students

My students are a vibrant bunch of third graders who come into my classroom ready to learn every day. We are a full inclusion school. My classroom is a safe haven where students are free to learn and share without fear of judgment. Instead, my students collaborate and help one another through their learning processes.

My school is a Title 1 school and my students have various learning and emotional needs.

Our classroom family consists of students from diverse cultures and backgrounds. I adore my students and want to provide them with the tools they need to be successful at school and in life.

My Project

MeMoves is a multi-sensory program incorporating bilateral hand movements, tranquil music, and imagery which is designed to calm students and make them more alert and focused, leading to emotional regulation and positive behavior benefits.

My students want to be successful, but, like many young children, they often have difficulty with self-regulation.

It's my job to help them learn these skills so they can have a successful future. MeMoves has a variety of benefits for students who have sensory processing needs, students who have autism, and students who have emotional needs, but it is valuable for ALL students.

I have tried the two sample videos available, and have already seen the benefits for my class. Instead of winding them up like a traditional brain break, MeMoves allows students to focus mental energy and coordination on the program. Every student in my class is actively engaged in the 3-4 minute video, whether perfectly following along, trying their best, or just swaying with the rhythm. The different categories (calm, focus, joy) would allow me to tailor the break to my class' need at the moment. My class would benefit immensely from MeMoves. Any help is appreciated!
