The MWF Class Settles In

What a wonderful three weeks we have had! The first two weeks of school are all about establishing ritual and supporting routine. By Monday of this week we were almost there. By this morning it was truly a settled, busy, calm place. I just love the process! We are quite the tactile group, reveling in work with sand and water. The number board and sand tray numbers with teacher support are headliners. We are heading into a week without the playground, so our plan for the last half hour includes bean bag toss, building walks on our new purple rope and dance in the music room. Your children are wonderful! Thank you for sharing them. We are a happy team.

The Short Blond Teacher

I am the short, blond teacher who shows your children how to be a tree, a tortoise, or a wheelbarrow. This is yoga! I read once that the secret to a long and happy life was to develop a chronic disease or condition at an early age AND TAKE CARE OF IT! Yoga came into my life at 19 after a horrendous car accident. I have spent the past 25 years sharing it with preschool children and their parents It is, in my opinion, the perfect way to center one?S emotions, and stretch one?s body and mind? easily and almost effort-free. It?s harder than it looks for adults, and easier than it seems for our children. When I first started teaching preschool, my concentration was on math and deductive reasoning for children. Because of my math major, I felt they were as important as anything being done in preschool at that time. I still feel that way, and yoga is a part of that. I?ve seen children respond to yoga, including an improvement in all the other varied parts of the preschool experience.
