Tai Chi Made Us Better
- Katia Celifie, Ps 33 Edward M. Funk School
Test-taking can be strenuous on our minds. In order to spearhead the possibility of stress during tests without students, the entire staff was trained and provided videos in Tai Chi for kids. Our test-taking grade teachers implemented regular fitness breaks using Tai Chi and reported that the students appeared jovial and stress-free at test time. The students report they felt better able to retain information and that the test did not seem so difficult or scary.
