Orchestra students at Longleaf Middle School use movement in class every day. Ms. H takes students through calisthenics and stretches to promote brain base learning. Students are very excited to lead these exercises and create their own to share with the class. Ms. H has noticed an increase in their attention span and alertness during classroom instruction.
