Yoga sticky Socks for Calm, Focused Kids!

Help me give my students their best "foot" forward when we are doing our quiet yoga (the mats were already donated) to have the proper sticky socks so they don't slip around on the mat!

My Students

My students are a very diverse group. Several are new to our country , refugees from Syria or Iraq or Jordan, as well as places in Mexico and Thailand.

In the last few years, the students at my school have focused on a growth mindset, as opposed to a fixed mindset.

They know that it's ok to make a mistake, and that it is a normal part of life.

I work in a Title 1 school, which means most of our population are low income. Many students have come back to me when they are in high school to say hello and how they are doing, and that means the world to me.

My Project

We are hoping for a gift of yoga socks.

Last year, a class set of yoga mats were donated to my class.

We had a wonderful time learning new yoga positions and focused meditation. However, they slipped around too much because they did not have the proper "sticky" socks.

Kids have lives that are full of stress and anxiety. Yoga and meditation can alleviate that, and help them manage their brains. We reserve a time in our library, so that it is indoors and quiet. Last year I noticed a positive difference in my 3rd graders' behavior. Please help us stay focused and calm.
