Our second grade classes are made up of 26 positive, engaged, and energetic students. They attend a large school in San Ramon, CA. Our 5 second grade classrooms consist of very diverse learners from all different cultures and backgrounds.
Our students have a lot going on during their busy school day and are always pushing themselves to put in their best effort, whether it be investigating during science or learning new strategies during math.
They are in a high performing district and often held to high expectations both physically and mentally. A large percentage of students are enrolled in after school and weekend classes which leaves very little time for them to re energize and relax.
Our students are busy both mentally and physically all day long. They have high expectations for themselves both in the classroom and at home. Teaching our students Yoga and giving them time during the morning to practice these skills will help strengthen their bodies and minds. We will ensure that students have a place to go where they can take a break from the stress of daily life.
The donations to this project will help give our students a time during the day where they can re center and clear their minds so that they can start their day with a positive energized attitude.
The Yoga mats will help promote engagement and allow students to use proper Yoga equipment. Finally, students will use mindfulness to improve their strength and flexibility using these Yoga skills throughout life.
