When the children arrive to our program, they are excited to see one another. The environment reflects this excitement and we have been offering challenges to support calm in the room. Today, we challenged our bodies by holding different poses. “Balance on one foot for a minute." K challenges her peers by bending on one knee stretching out her leg in front of her. You can hear their dedication and determination as the children stretch out their muscles. When they release from their stretch, laughter fills the room. C introduces the “cobra pose” while A demonstrates her pose. Creative movement can be used to enhance all areas pf learning and growth. Does your child have a lot of energy? Why not try this simple activity at home!
