Register From Ten to Zen Yoga & Meditation - Spring '23 This is definitely not mommy’s yoga practice! This class is different from anything you have in mind when thinking of a yoga class but will still contain all of the amazing benefits that yoga and mindfulness has to offer. Children derive enormous benefit from yoga and mindfulness practice, it enhances their ability to focus and learn, teaches them to focus on the present moment, brings them awareness of others and their surroundings, gives them tools to help navigate the sea of emotions, as well as the physical aspects of flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration, stress relief abilities, and sense of calmness improves, allowing them to absorb and learn more.

We will also study related topics to the literature of the week including history, geography, and science. Adela, fluent in Spanish, would love to share her love for the language with students while exploring topics that will arise from the literature. For Spanish some of the literature will be: 1. Family Pictures by Carmen Lomas Garza (an illustrated book for ages 6-12) 2. The House on Mango Street by the same author. (ages 12 and up) a coming of age story. 3.

For some of this class we will focus on what people usually picture when they think of geometry: topics like area, perimeter and volume, measuring angles, and using triangles to find the heights of tree and buildings. You know, stuff you can use in the real world out there. About 2/3 of the class covers problems that are not designed to necessarily be directly usable in the real world, but are instead exercises so students can explore and practice the process of solving problems in general. We will spend a significant amount of time on proofs and logic, which helps students consider how we know the things we know, and how to build on knowledge we’ve learned before .....
