Community Involvement,  Physical Activity Participation
We had a group of community volunteers come in and teach a set of yoga poses to each grade level. They taught over 10 poses to teach mental relaxation along with stretching. They spent three days with us so that each class would receive exactly the same lesson. They stressed that we need to make sure we are exercising the whole body both mentally and physically. We are so blessed to have a diverse community to gain knowledge from. The students loved it and showed great respect to our visitors.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The adults from the community taught us the yoga poses and together we transferred the lesson to the classroom floor.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We will carry over what we learned from our community friends and keep it going the rest of the year and into next year.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Some of the children's families said that it was against their beliefs and didn't want their children to participate. We gave them alternatives to the activities we were doing.
