SCHOOL KIDS YOGA & MINDFULNESS AND COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS https://kellywoodyoga.com/school-kids-yoga-mindfulness-common-core-state-standards/ https://kellywoodyoga.com/school-kids-yoga-mindfulness-common-core-state-standards/#respond Wed, 29 Mar 2017 23:51:15 +0000 http://kellywoodyoga.com/?p=1366 The Common Core State Standards provide benchmarks for learning by grade level, K-12. Teachers understandably like to have some level of freedom in how they deliver subject matter to students as their creativity and improvisation have the ability to heighten motivation to learn. Many teachers these days are finding the balance between meeting Common Core State Standards and bringing their unique teaching skills into the classroom. In simple terms, it seems to me that this balance is between ...

As I walked into the sixth class, the second graders were scampering to follow their wonderful public school teacher’s instructions to close their books, put pencils onto the top of their notebooks, push in their chairs, and make their way to the rug for our SCHOOL Kids Yoga & Mindfulness class. I walk by children moving here and there, and notice one girl nervously holding something ...

Going into public schools for over 13 years and teaching to elementary aged children has provided quite a wealth of experience. It is safe to say that the approach I take with these amazing inner city kids works. The essence of the practice, the reason to practice, the motivation to practice is to have a calm heart.
