During the next 3 days students will continue practicing their presentation on the Christmas show. Next to that we keep doing our daily warm that consists on a routine of basic yoga positions the kids are already familiar with. Kids will also stay active through different active games and running drills.

Dear Parents,
We feel excited as we reach the first half of November this week. 

Time flies as we get ready to celebrate the Holidays. This week students will start learning and practicing their presentation for the Christmas Show using their rhythmical skills to the max. Next to that, students keep practicing their yoga routines daily. Students practice hopping to travel in different directions in response to various rhythms and cardiovascular exercises through a race with obstacles.

Dear Parents,
We are ready for more movement and we receive this month with thankful hearts. 

During the following week, as usual, students will be very active in Motricity class. Students will perform exercises in which they use combinations that include two movement skills, object control and body control. Students will also exercise through a variety of basic locomotor movements like running, skipping, hopping and crawling; as they go through different obstacle paths. Our daily warm up to get ready before every activity consists on a routine of basic yoga positions the kids are already familiar with. 

Friday FUN-day ↠ Every Friday students have been working in teams as they go to different centers to experiment gross and fine motor exercises through fun active games.

Dear Parents,

We are ready to start another week.

Students will practice cardiovascular exercises through different games and activities like the "Wiggle worm" game. This game consists on having the students stand in a line to form a worm. Each team must run to a goal line and back. Whichever team gets back first is the winner. Most of the activities we do in class seek to build collaborative team performance instead of competitiveness. 

It is easier for kids to remember the yoga poses when they can relate it with something they are already familiar with, that is why the warm up yoga routine for this week will be full of Halloween themed poses.

Dear Parents,

I hope you all had great and well rested vacations. 

Students keep creating self awareness as they explore movement through every activity we do in class. They practice non loco-motor skills and are able to identify basic body positions from yoga. During this week students will pretend they are climbing a mountain in order to work on arm-leg coordination and loco-motor exercises. Student's circulatory system is a priority and we keep it healthy through speed and agility drills. 

Students develop different gross and fine motor exercises as they go through fun stations.

To avoid any injuries please make sure your child wears appropriate running shoes to school on Wednesday, October 11th.

5 minutes would be good enough to do some Yoga with your kid either before coming to school, for a good start up to your day; or before bedtime, to get a good night sleep.
