MUSIC, MOVEMENT YOGA & SPANISH
Music and movement obviously go hand in hand. During classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, we incorporate Bible stories, Bible songs and prayer to reinforce Bible concepts as well as the importance of music in worship and praise to God. We call it "Fusion."
So how does Spanish and Yoga fit into the mix?
We use the Spanish curriculum from Frog Street Press that is set to familiar tunes. Fluency, pronunciation and comprehension are all reinforced by singing and moving our bodies to the songs.
Our yoga class teaches our students how to breathe, relax, balance and stretch. Recent studies show that yoga at an early age, teaches students to self soothe and self- regulate their bodies and emotions.
We also have learned that yoga helps our students with perseverance, goals, trying something new in a safe environment and listening to their bodies. Using basic moves (based on animals and nature) and a few silly videos, we relax and have fun learning new ways to exercise.
