Self Study Movement

Teaching Artist: Alisha Harris

Mindful practices like yoga and meditation give children the opportunity to gain social-emotional learning skills. This is important because it helps students cope with everyday challenges, and benefits them academically by increasing their mental focus and clarity, social skills, effective problem solving, impulse control, and emotion management.

Each lesson will challenge students to discover new things about themselves to help with how they show up in today’s society. What are their communication skills? How do they behave in social settings? What coping mechanisms are used for big emotions? How do those big emotions show up? Are they able to understand themselves from the inside and advocate for their needs?
