Adventures in Spanish (Grades 2nd-5th)

Students will start speaking in phrases from the very first class using "puzzle piece" sentences, role-plays, active book reading and more!

Students speak to each other, have opportunities to be "teacher" and build confidence in themselves as individuals.

Kid's Yoga

This yoga class designed for children in Kindergarten through grade 3 starts with a warm-up and then the bulk of the class is moving through an idea and/or story (for example, inclusion and acceptance) or how to deal with a potential problem (being scared, lonely, etc.) while creating poses with our bodies. Poses might be traditional, but called names that correlate with story/idea. Others might be variations of traditional poses, but are modified for the story. Class ends with a few moments of savasana when children are led through a short story with a meaning that correlates to our class that afternoon, or something different that will promote imagination and relaxation
