My Students

When my students walk into my classroom every morning, I see nothing but excitement on their faces. My students, ages 3-5, learn best through hands-on experiences; we tend to have lots of activities that stimulate their sensory needs. In my classroom, our learning is all play based and find that this best fits my student's needs. We focus on their emotional, educational, mental, and physical needs best fit.

We are a Title I school and house diversity.

My students receive levels of learning that they may not ever receive at home or in other centers.

My Project

These yoga mats will help my students connect their body with their minds. We practice yoga every morning before we get our day started and the kids love it; it helps get them focused and ready to begin the day.

Preschool children benefit from yoga in so many ways; the benefits include: increasing coordination, improving concentration, encouraging a calmer mind, alleviating stress, and promoting self-expression.

Yoga helps children strengthen their body and build social skills with each other. Children learn how to breathe for focus and relaxation to provide a healthy foundation for the transition to elementary school years. By promoting this change, it will help the students be more prepared for the future.
